READING, Pa., – Albright College has received a $2.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Albright will receive $2,246,089 over the next five years, between Oct. 1, 2018 and Sept. 30, 2023 to transform the college’s approach to learning and student success in the first year of higher education.
In addition, the college will supplement $615,000 during the grant period and approximately $575,000 annually thereafter in support of the new program.
The Federal Title III program helps eligible higher education institutions to become self-sufficient and expand their capacity to serve low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen their academic quality, institutional management and fiscal stability.
To be eligible for Title III grants, at least 50 percent of an intuition’s degree-seeking students must receive need-based assistance under Title IV of the Higher Education Act, or a substantial number of enrolled students must receive Pell Grants and have low educational and general expenditures.
