Generation Hope, a non-profit focusing on student parents, will be opening applications for the third cohort of its FamilyU technical assistance program, which aims to help higher ed institutions strengthen student-parent success.Student Parents

The two-year program is designed to teach and coach schools on how to better serve their student-parent population and how to better collect data and track the parenting status of students. Participating institutions receive resources such as a customized work plan guided by Generation Hope’s Student Parent Campus Capacity Assessment and cohort convenings. They also receive a $20,000 grant each upon completion to advance their student-parent work.

The application deadline is Apr. 30. Up to five schools will be selected for this year’s cohort, with preference given to historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and schools that champion race equity through policies and practices. Those chosen will be announced this summer.

Generation Hope will host two online information sessions with live Q&A for interested applicants, 2-3 p.m. ET Feb. 22 and 4-5 p.m. ET Apr. 13.
