Description of the Project

The start-up grants for the project will help offset the funding needed to start new College and Career Transition Counselor positions in Iowa. College and Career Transition Counselors will work directly through the community college and secondary schools to support college transition and career exploration through targeted connections with students and families during crucial time frames, including preparation, transition to enrollment, and persistence through their postsecondary program. These counselors will work closely with students in grades 11 and 12 in partner high schools, throughout the summer after high school graduation, and as the first-year advisor for students coming out of this program at the coordinating community college. The positions will be hosted at the community college and partner with at least one school district.


Purpose of the Grant

Financial support to expand the College and Career Transition Counselors across the state is provided by the Department of Education, Bureau of Career and Technical Education. Grant recipients will receive funding for a three-year period of time. There will be a total of three, 3-year grant cycles.
