Building Evidence to Increase Rural Learner Success

Supporting action-oriented research projects that address gaps in evidence for rural learner postsecondary education and workforce success.

Projects are Underway for this Opportunity

Ascendium is pleased to support seven organizations with grant funding through our Building Evidence to Increase Rural Learner Success initiative. These partners will generate an array of research that advances the understanding of rural learners and the postsecondary education and workforce pathways that best serve them. We look forward to learning and sharing what comes from these projects!
