We are currently taking applications/nominations for our 2017 KY Emerging Leaders class that will take place at the 2017 KNCT-3 Conference in Charlotte, NC. Please complete the following form to be considered. Spots are limited, so know that applying does not automatically mean you will be selected for the 2017 KY ELI class. Apply here: https://form.jotform.us/72013518402141


We are also taking applications/nominations for the 2018/2019 SAEOPP Emerging Leaders class. This will take place preceding the 2018 & 2019 SAEOPP Conference. Spots are also limited for this opportunity. Preference is given to those who have completed the KY ELI training. Apply here: https://form.jotform.us/72014456302142

I encourage anyone interested in any sort of TRIO leadership to apply to one or both of these opportunities. These are great ways to start your journey into TRIO leadership. If you have any questions, please let me know, and I would be happy to talk to anyone who wants to participate.

THE TALENT SEARCH APPLICATION PACKAGE IS NOW AVAILABLE VIA GRANTS.GOV

posted Dec 23, 2015, 11:21 AM by Matthew Hyden   [ updated Dec 23, 2015, 11:22 AM ]

THE TALENT SEARCH APPLICATION PACKAGE IS NOW AVAILABLE VIA GRANTS.GOV - http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html?keywords=84.044
 
December 22, 2015
 
Dear TRIO Colleagues:
 
Today, the notice announcing the final Talent Search application appeared in the Federal Register. It is available here:  https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/12/22/2015-32089/applications-for-new-awards-talent-search-program. The proposal is due in 45 days on Friday, February 5, 2016.
 
Despite receiving more than 300 comments, the majority of which expressed concern about the proposed competitive preference priorities, the application is virtually identical to the draft released by the Department last fall. In particular, the application includes two competitive preference priorities, worth six points total. Note, however, that both parts (a) and (b) of each competitive preference priority must be addressed in order to obtain all available points.
 
  • Competitive Preference Priority (1a) - Provide academic tutoring (1 point)
  • Competitive Preference Priority (1b) – Cite research studies supporting the proposed tutoring strategy that shows Evidence of Promise (1 point) or Moderate Evidence of Effectiveness (2 points)
 
  • Competitive Preference Priority (2a) - Provide mentoring programs (1 point)
  • Competitive Preference Priority (2b) – Cite research studies supporting the proposed mentoring strategy that shows Evidence of Promise (1 point) or Moderate Evidence of Effectiveness (2 points)
 
The Pell Institute, COE’s research arm, is currently working to identify appropriate research studies to assist applicants. COE is also working to assure that currently funded Talent Search projects receive an increase in 2016-17 consistent with the 7.2% increase Congress provided TRIO.  We will inform you as soon as information on such increases becomes available.
 
COE will host an EOC and Talent Search Proposal Writing Workshop for Institutional Members on January 5-6, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. (Click here to learn more and to register.) COE will also host webinars on the Talent Search Competitive Preference Priorities on January 11 (Priorities 1a and 1b) and January 12 (2a and 2b). (Click here to learn more and to register.) If you have additional questions or concerns about the Talent Search grant competition or require other technical assistance, please contact Angelica Vialpando via e-mail (angelica.vialpando@coenet.us).
