Connect Aspirations to a Plan

The Connect Aspirations to a Plan initiative provided grants that supported college access programs in Maine high schools and communities. These college access programs sought to increase the number of Maine high school graduates who aspire to enroll, and who actually enroll in, post-secondary study.
