By 2035, we will help 1,000,000 students enter and complete a postsecondary education degree or career training certificate or licensure program, specifically to enter careers that provide a sense of purpose and meaning to their lives.
The Research Institute for College & Career Readiness advances innovative, scalable solutions to improve postsecondary outcomes for all students – especially among underserved populations and to enhance the performance of K-12 schools and districts with respect to preparing all students to be college and career ready.
The Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy is designed to increase the number of high achieving students who are academically and mentally prepared with the social-emotional skills to: 1) complete medical school and 2) become licensed to practice medicine in a medical specialty that provides a sense of purpose and meaning to their lives.
We are interested in supporting non-profit 501c3 organizations that are committed to increasing the diversity of the physician workforce. Grant funding will support medical school pipeline programs across the nation that are designed to support projects that expand access to medical school education for a diverse group of talented youths, as early as the 4th grade, including students traditionally underrepresented in medicine, and those that come from families with limited financial resources.
