Reminder: Second Chance Pell Pilot Program

Dear Colleagues:

Few interventions have been shown to reduce recidivism and prepare people in prison to lead productive lives like access to quality postsecondary education and training (see RAND study findings below).  Today’s OCTAE Connection is another reminder to the field about the Second Chance Pell Pilot Program available to institutions of higher education.  The deadline for institutions to apply for this pilot program is October 2, 2015, for the 2016-17 academic year. Please share this with your postsecondary partners and Correctional Education colleagues.
