The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Postsecondary Success Initiative focuses on doubling the numbers of low-income students who complete college. Our long-term vision is a nation where all students who want to earn a postsecondary degree or credential can. Students can benefit from improved delivery models, targeted financial aid packages, and engaging technologies that will enhance learning and completion and reduce cost per degree. Achieving this goal will require understanding the completion challenge, building organizational processes for student success, and creating bolder models for and approaches to postsecondary learning. We need your skill and will in the completion challenge.
