All proposals must meet the two overarching IYPC grant objectives to be considered for approval. Please review the two objectives below carefully prior to submission.
1. Increase opportunities for Indiana youth to participate in learning experiences on college campuses that will expose those youth to Indiana’s higher education institutions while providing them with experiences that will, among other things, help prepare them for success in college and later life.
2. Increase the numbers of Indiana youth who successfully attend Indiana colleges and universities and obtain valuable postsecondary degrees and credentials and thereby help strengthen the institutions and improve the education levels of Indiana residents.
**Mindful of these two goals and based on the belief that students, especially students of color, first-generation college students and students from families with limited resources, are more likely to attend college if they are exposed to college life and campuses as youth.
