Application open for 2021 Stan Jones Student Success Grant

INDIANA – Indiana college partners are invited by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to submit applications for the 2021 Stan Jones Student Success Grant by Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. (ET).

Created in 2017, the Stan Jones Student Success Grant supports college partners with promising student success practices. Up to $10,000 in grant funds is available, and the recipient(s) will be announced at the 2021 Student Advocates Conference. Recipient(s) will be asked to present their program/project during a conference breakout session. Grants will be distributed to college and university campuses with promising practices that support student success initiatives on their campus and beyond.

Named in honor of the late Stan Jones, former president of Complete College America and former Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education, this award builds upon his legacy of landmark education policy and student success initiatives, including the 21st Century Scholars program, an early promise scholarship aimed at increasing the number of low-income students attending and completing a postsecondary education.

“Stan was a tireless advocate for education who sought to make higher education affordable and accessible for all Hoosiers,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “Recipients of this grant embody Stan’s legacy by providing critical wraparound services to students to encourage postsecondary completion.”

The Stan Jones Student Success Grant is made possible through generous support from Strada Education Network.
