More than 70 new colleges and universities chosen to help the incarcerated get credentials - Chris Burt, University Business

The Department of Education is expanding Second Chance Pell Experiment for prospective students in prison.  The U.S. Department of Education announced it has selected an additional 73 institutions to take part in the Second Chance Pell Experiment, which has helped incarcerated individuals gain access to higher ed programming since 2015. The program, with its third wave of new additions, has now reached 200 institutions chosen to lead the way on this unique initiative, which is expected to fully ramp up in July 2023 when Pell Grant reinstatement occurs.
