KICKSTARTER PROGRAM FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE HISPANIC SERVING INSTITUTIONS
$1.8M NSF GRANT (HRD#1450661)
The KickStarter Program, a 3 year NSF grant led by SFAz, is a technical assistance program that prepares and positions Community Colleges that are Hispanic Serving Institutions (CC-HSI's) to compete successfully for federal funds with focus on student recruitment and retention in STEM fields. After a rigorous assessment and STEM Pathways Planning Process, each CC-HSI will write proposals for at least 2 federal funding grants. The CC-HSI's also expect to increase sustainability of newly funded programs through engagement with a broader range of partners in K-12, industry, and four-year institutions to create stronger STEM Pathway programs. There are 18 HSCC-HSI's in total across 3 cohorts.
