We’re very proud to announce that Bright Prospect was selected by USA Funds, a national foundation, as one of 3 recipients – chosen from among 249 applications nationally – to receive a grant through the foundation’s “Key Transitions in Postsecondary Education” initiative.  Bright Prospect will receive $600,000 over three years. 

Receiving such a competitive award is a great honor for Bright Prospect.  As we are growing by 300 students per year at a cost of $1,000/student per year, we must raise an additional $300,000 each year above and beyond what we raised the year before.   This grant will not only help Bright Prospect support more students from our community on their journey to and through college; it will also draw attention to our CrewsTM model, which we will be making available for replication by other organizations.

Needless to say, the mood is quite celebratory here at the office!  We are grateful not only for this latest validation of our work but also for the support of everyone who has ever contributed to Bright Prospect  in any way and made it possible for us to build a program that stood out in a very competitive field.
