In August 2023, IWPR launched the Connect for Success Initiative (CSI). This national research and learning initiative will study and expand sustainable partnerships and service delivery models to meet community college students’ SRH needs through grantmaking and a learning community. Through this initiative, IWPR will provide grant funding for up to 20 grantees that have existing programs providing SRH care and support to community college students, especially those from underserved backgrounds.
IWPR will work closely with grantees during the two-year grant period to document, understand, and synthesize lessons learned and promising practices to facilitate the expansion of SRH supports to more students in more colleges. It will also convene stakeholders (program implementers, community partners, policymakers, college administrators, faculty, staff, and students) to share knowledge, build relationships, and identify and seize upon opportunities for bolstering SRH services and supports for community college student success.
IWPR is Now Accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOI) for Future Grants for Understanding Sexual and Reproductive Health Services and Supports for Community College Students.
