Grants to USA institutions of higher education for programs that promote and foster student success. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support programs that provide services to students who are disadvantaged, disconnected, and/or underrepresented.
The purpose of the SSS Program is to increase the number of disadvantaged, low-income college students, first-generation college students, and college students with disabilities in the United States who successfully complete a program of study at the postsecondary level. The support services that are provided should increase the retention and graduation rates for these categories of students and facilitate their transfer from two-year to four-year colleges and universities.
The support services should also foster an institutional climate that supports the success of students who are limited English proficient, students from groups that are historically underrepresented in postsecondary education, students with disabilities, students who are homeless children and youths, students who are in foster care or are aging out of the foster care system, and other disconnected students. Student support services should also improve the financial and economic literacy of students.

Competitive Preference Priority 2--Fostering Knowledge and Promoting the Development of Skills That Prepare Students To Be Informed, Thoughtful, and Productive Individuals and Citizens (up to 2 points).
Note: For both priorities, the Department is sufficiently interested in these topics that it may later seek to partner with successful applicants to conduct research and evaluation.
