Adams State was awarded a five-year grant of $2,838,865 that will help expand education opportunities for Hispanic and low-income students. It was awarded by the Department of Education’s Promoting Post-baccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans (PPOHA), a Title V program for Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI’s).

To improve the four-year master’s degree attainment rate – now at 50 percent – for Hispanic and low-income students by 15% over the grant period, the project is creating a Center for Graduate Studies that will offer students on-campus and online support services.

  • Academic and professional skill-building workshop
  • A team of Alumni Mentors
  • Access to streamlined university processes such as advising and tutoring
  • Incentive stipends and graduate assistantship to support academic success

Faculty and staff learning communities will also be created for professional development and best practice sharing.
