Tech Prep Education Grants

(Perkins III, Title II) $108 M


Tech Prep grants are awarded to states, which in turn allocate funds to consortia consisting of secondary and postsecondary institutions. These consortia help students attain a common core of required proficiencies in mathematics, science, reading, writing, communications, economics and workplace skills through applied, contextual academics and integrated instruction, in a coherent sequence of courses. Tech-Prep programs are designed to lead to an associate degree or postsecondary certificate in a technical career field and, where appropriate, link to courses of study at four-year institutions.  Consortia establish agreements encompassing at least two years of secondary school and at least two years of postsecondary education, and must include a public or private nonprofit institution of higher education.  The postsecondary institutions are predominantly community and technical colleges.

Additionally, some programs included in the section on direct funding to community colleges, such as GEAR UP, make state, as well as institutional, awards.
