If your high school wants to increase the number of students who pursue education beyond high school, we encourage you to apply for an EducationQuest College Access Grant.

This program provides multi-year funding to Nebraska high schools with the goal of increasing schools’ college-going rates.

EducationQuest awards College Access Grants every two years through a competitive application process. Schools are funded for four years with annual awards ranging from $2,500 to $20,000 depending on school enrollment.

High schools use grant funds to develop and support college-access activities.

In 2022, EducationQuest selected 24 high schools to receive College Access Grants. Since the program started in 2006, we have awarded $6.2 million in grants to 111 schools.

EducationQuest is currently not accepting applications. Applications for the 2024 cycle will start being accepted in fall 2023.
