Strong Start to Finish Makes Investments to Advance Developmental Education Reform
Grants total more than $5.3 million and expand initiative’s impact to nearly 5 million undergraduates
Second Pooled Investment
In October 2019, the Education Commission of the States was awarded a second pooled investment to advance the work of Strong Start to Finish. The funds are to support work streams grounded in the scaling and enhancing of reforms that have proven to directly and positively impact student progression into and through math and English credit-bearing course work in their first year of study. Pooled funds will support three interrelated streams of work. Each stream builds upon the foundation of success laid by the initial pooled investment in SSTF and responds to extant and emergent technical assistance needs in the field.
