NYEdTech Meetup recently announced their partnership with Robin Hood Foundation for the $5 Million, College Success Prize. The prize was developed to help encourage community college students to graduate in a timely manner. The prize will reward submissions that propose highly scalable tech-based solutions that are designed to be used by individual students.
From the Robin Hood Foundation site:
The "College Success" Prize is designed to empower students and arm them with the tools they need to graduate in a timely fashion (2-3 years). With the ultimate goal of alleviating poverty, Robin Hood hopes to spur the development of an innovative, scalable and technology-enabled tool to improve the academic performance of underprepared college students.
Thanks to NYEdTech Meetup for sharing this news and we look-forward to attending your Meetup tomorrow evening.
