Nearly $1.4 million in grant awards from Indianapolis-based Lumina Foundation will enable two substantial WICHE projects to commence this month. A $990,000 three-year grant will help WICHE’s programs and services team develop a network of Native-Serving Institutions to help close attainment gaps for American Indians and Alaska Natives. And a $400,000 two-year grant enables WICHE’s policy and research team to establish a task force in partnership with selected Western states to develop broadly applicable evidence-based strategies to close postsecondary education attainment gaps.

In the coming months, we will illuminate more about these exciting WICHE initiatives.
