In today’s economic climate, many institutions of higher education are struggling with outdated, inefficient tools because they can’t find the funds to invest in services that, in the long run, will prove to be timesaving, cost-effective and beneficial to students.
At Comevo, we believe all institutions merit the technology their staff and students need to fulfill their educational missions. Fortunately, there are public and private funding sources that help schools secure access to cutting edge technology that will enhance their student success programs. If you are having trouble locating the funds for Online Orientation software, we encourage you to explore the following grant opportunities:
Title III Part A
The federally funded program helps eligible institutions of higher education (IHEs) become self-sufficient and expand their capacity to serve low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen the academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability of eligible institutions.
Title III Part B
The federally funded program provides financial assistance to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to establish or strengthen their physical plants, financial management, academic resources, and endowment-building capacity. Supported activities include student services.
The federally funded program provides grants to assist Hispanic-Service Institutions (HSIs) to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the attainment of, Hispanic students. The grants also enable HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.
The federal outreach and student services programs are designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRiO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities so that they can progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post baccalaureate programs.
Achieving the Dream
Sponsored by a national nonprofit organization, this program helps community college students succeed, particularly students of color and low-income students. Launched as an initiative in 2004 with funding provided by Lumina Foundation, Achieving the Dream is built on the belief that broad institutional change, informed by student achievement data, is critical to significantly improving student success rates.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has created a Postsecondary Success Strategy aimed at dramatically increasing the number of young adults who complete their postsecondary education. The foundation is making investments geared toward, among other things, college completion, community colleges, technology innovation, and workforce development.
The Lumina Foundation believes that education provides the basis for individual opportunity, economic vitality, and social stability. With its partners, Lumina strives to meet workforce demands and close attainment gaps for groups not historically well served by higher education.
