WHAT IS TITLE III?
We’re glad you asked! Many people have this question. In short, Title III is a federal grant program geared toward strengthening institutions. This grant funding helps eligible institutions to improve their academic programs, institutional management, and fiscal stability. In 2021, when our grant was awarded, the Department of Ed was particularly interested in programs that will support students through degree completion.Learn more about PSC's Title III Grant Award
