NJ’S COLLEGE ACCESS CHALLENGE GRANT
“ TOOLS FOR COLLEGE ACCESS”

Dual Enrollment Incentive Grants


Overview:
For Fiscal 2012 there are 10 dual enrollment programs at NJ colleges and universities. Dual enrollment enables students to earn college credits while they are still enrolled in high school.

Colleges solicit students individually or operate the program through sustainable partnerships with local school districts.

Funds may be used to accommodate substantive meetings with selected school districts, reimburse employees for travel, for additional staff hours worked outside the traditional workday (if applicable), for training of high school teachers who will provide the instruction, and for tuition and books for students with demonstrated financial need. Funds from the grant may not be used to supplant current salaries, for food, or for other activities not directly related to the mission of the project.

The Dual Enrollment Initiative Grant program is funded by a three-year Federal grant. Funds for each grant may cover up to 50% of the program cost, including tuition reimbursement for students with demonstrated financial need. Fifty percent (50%) of the funding must come from partnership institutions, or through need-sensitive tuition revenues. The purpose of the program is to create and grow programs that could be self-sustaining after a potential three year grant cycle, so local funding agreements will be helpful in trying to replicate promising models across the State.
