Miami-Dade College awarded $13 million in grants

Miami Dade College will receive a major financial boost, thanks to an additional $13 million in grants. The funding is specifically earmarked for program supporting low-income and underserved students, including peer tutoring, research opportunities and a support network.

The grants are focused on improving teaching in the classroom and services for students outside the classroom and are aimed primarily at serving Hispanic students, who make up the majority of MDC’s student population.

Four campuses – Hialeah, InterAmerican, Wolfson and Kendall – are the recipients of the combined amount of nearly $10 million in Title V grants and the college received nearly $3 million through the First in the World (FITW) program, a federal grant initiative designed to drive innovation and keep higher education within reach of all Americans.
