A Meeting On Academic Competitiveness Grants


The Academic Competitiveness Grant Program is for full-time students at degree-granting institutions who are eligible for Federal Pell Grants and are U.S. citizens, offering full-time Pell-eligible college students an additional $750 scholarship during their first year, and an additional $1,300 scholarship during their second year, if they have completed a rigorous program of study in high school. Each state has the opportunity to define a “rigorous secondary program of study” and submit its plan to the Department of Education for recognition. The meeting provided an opportunity for stakeholders—Governors’ education staff, Chief State School Officers, State Higher Education Executive Officers, and State Scholar Directors—to solicit input from a variety of education stakeholders as they map out their plans for ACG implementation.
