Two new public-private commitments aimed at helping community colleges increase student success and develop a highly skilled workforce—a $1 million annual prize for the best program and $35 million in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—will be announced today at the White House Summit on Community Colleges.
The Gates Foundation’s Completion by Design initiative will provide five-year competitive grants that will build on the best ways to improve college graduation rates, White House officials said during a press briefing on the eve of the summit, which will be led by Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden and a community college English professor.
