In the biggest shift in U.S. public education in generations, states across the country are working to adopt more rigorous learning standards to better prepare students for college and careers.
Helmsley's Education Program aspires to advance American economic competitiveness as well as individual social mobility. To that end, the Education Program supports K-12 and higher education initiatives to help ensure that all students, including those who are economically disadvantaged, have access to a quality education and the opportunity to attain a meaningful postsecondary credential. The desired impact is a nationally diverse cross section of students successfully graduating high school and completing college or postsecondary certificates ready for globally competitive careers.
***The Education Program is actively winding down. Please note that we are no longer accepting proposals for new grants in this field.***
