College Access Challenge Grant

The College Access Challenge Grant (CACG) is a grant designed to foster partnerships among Federal, State and local government entities and philanthropic organizations to significantly increase the number of underrepresented students who enter and remain in postsecondary education. CACG provides grants to states to meet the needs of underrepresented students and families.

Idaho’s CACG will give direct support to students by providing tuition assistance and/or textbooks for dual credit courses. Underrepresented students will be identified through a brief application process initiated by school staff and sent to the Dual Credit Coordinator. Please note, a request for funds is not guarantee of funding.

College Access Challenge Grant Application

If you do not qualify for free or reduced lunch you also need to submit the CACG Statement of Financial Need.
