Pathways to Postsecondary Education Awards

 

Presented by The Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education

 

For over 10 years, the Pathways to Postsecondary Education Awards presented by the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education (ACPE) recognize successful college access programs across the State that assist students and families as they prepare for, transition to or succeed in postsecondary education.  The awards are meant not only to honor the outstanding programs, but to recognize the good work being done in college access with the hope the work being done can be replicated to assist other students to succeed in postsecondary education.

 

Awards will be presented in the following four categories: 

 

K-12                            Programs/efforts by K-12 schools to support students                                    as they transition into postsecondary education

 

Higher Education        Programs/efforts by postsecondary institutions to                                    support students through K-12 and into postsecondary                                    education

 

Community                 Programs/efforts by community stakeholders to support                                   students through K-12 and into postsecondary                                   education 

 

Business                 Programs/efforts by business stakeholders to support                                students through K-12 and into postsecondary education

 

Entries must be submitted to the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education (ACPE) no later than Friday, August 2, 2013.  Award winners will be recognized Friday morning, November 22,  2013 at an award ceremony breakfast on the second day of the Developing Human Capital Conference at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Phoenix.  Awards will be presented by an Arizona State legislator(s).
