• Funders

  • The Center’s activities are supported by a combination of institutional and grant funding. Our major grant sources are the Title V program of the US Department of Education, aimed at improving the quality of Hispanic-serving institutions, and the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE) of the US Department of Education.  In addition, we have attracted significant funding from the Ford Foundation, the New York State Department of Education (through the Carl T. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the City University of New York Technology Fee, the New York State Workforce Development Fund, and the CUNY Undergraduate Education initiative.
