Teacher credentialing grant applications now being accepted for College Credit Plus

9/9/2019

The Ohio Department of Higher Education and the Ohio Department of Education are requesting grant proposals to support graduate coursework for high school teachers who need additional qualifications to teach college courses under the College Credit Plus program. For more information and to view eligibility requirements, click here.

The awarding of funds will be based on need, merit of proposal and the applicant’s ability to collaborate and develop strategies to decrease gaps in qualified College Credit Plus instructors. Priority will be given to educational consortia that include economically disadvantaged high schools where there are a limited number of teachers or no teachers credentialed to teach College Credit Plus courses. The award also may support the employment of teachers currently credentialed to teach college courses as a bridging strategy until a sufficient number of teachers at an identified high school hold required credentials.

All applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 30. Please email questions or concerns to CCPCompetitiveGrantSubmission@education.ohio.gov.
