CoPro2.0 Request for Concept Papers


Through this $2.6 million funding opportunity, Kresge will award up to seven grants of varying award amounts. Separately and together, funded projects are expected to show how College Promise programs at community colleges can:

  • advance equity and help dismantle systemic racism;
  • improve postsecondary outcomes for historically marginalized populations;
  • reinforce the capacity of community colleges to provide high-quality postsecondary education and improve the well-being of students and local communities; and
  • partner with other organizations to leverage resources and maximize program contributions to ensure long-term sustainability.

Download the full Request for Concept Papers to learn more. We invite interested applicants to join our webinar at 1-2 p.m. EDT on July 14 to hear more and ask questions. RSVP at
