  • Deadline Extended! — There’s still time to turn in a nomination for the Beacon Award for Excellence in Student Achievement and Success! This is an annual award to recognize institutional or programmatic accomplishments in student achievement and success at the NWCCU family of institutions. Three separate categories of The Beacon Award will be offered, based on unduplicated student enrollment during the most recent fall student headcounts: institutions with fewer than 2,000 students; between 2,000 and 6,000 students; and more than 6,000 students. There is a cash award, and a very impressive trophy presented at the Awards Luncheon during the NWCCU Annual Conference. Learn more at:
  • The U.S. Department of Education announced it will expand the Second Chance Pell funding for the 2022-2023 award year. Second Chance Pell has provided education opportunities for thousands of justice-involved individuals who have previously been unable to access federal need-based financial aid.
