CoPro2.0 Strategy Memo


This informational primer,  prepared by Laura Perna, helped Kresge prepare to launch its College Promise funding opportunity, CoPro2.0. Drawing from a review of recent research and news articles, interviews with 12 thought leaders in higher education, and other data, the goals were to:

  • illuminate the nexus of college promise programs, educational equity, and financial sustainability;
  • clarify the viability and relevance of the funding opportunity and provide recommendations Kresge’s role in incentivizing the attainment of the opportunity’s knowledge and programming needs; and
  • advise Kresge on how to support multi-level partnerships that increase public financial support for student aid and operational funding to institutions.

The Kresge Education Program will invest $2.6 million into seven projects through CoPro2.0. You can also view an informational webinar held on July 14 that detailed the initiative and answered questions.
