ACE Grant Re-Awarded through 2020!
The Achieving College Excellence (ACE) Program team is thrilled to announce some fantastic news! After a several month long nationwide grant competition, Loyola University Chicago has been successful in obtaining an additional 5 years of funding for the continuation of ACE services! With a start date of September 1, 2015, funding of approximately 1.1 million dollars has been secured through August 31, 2020. ACE, a TRiO Student Support Services program, is part of a nationwide initiative designed and implemented through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education. In existence and constant development since the mid-1960s, TRiO has assisted countless first-generation, low-income, and students with disabilities in attaining a high school diploma and/or college degree(s). We are inspired to continue this legacy through ACE and hope you will stand with us in these efforts.
