Consortium Receives Sixth FIPSE Grant
The League for Innovation in the Community College has won its sixth FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education) grant, worth $270,000 over three years, for a proposal entitled "Building Student Success into Tech-Prep Programs." The project aims to assist community colleges in implementing tech-prep programs focused on student success.

Final guidelines will be published and disseminated at the League's annual conference on workforce development issues, "WORKFORCE 2000," to be held Jan. 31 - Feb. 3, 1996, in Orlando, Fla.
