USDOE has established a grant competition for the purposes of supporting the replication and expansion of high-quality charter schools.  Funds may be used to substantially increase enrollment at existing schools or to open one or more new charter schools based on an existing model.  USDOE estimates making 5 to 8 grants, with an average size of $7M.  The Department estimates that grants will range in size from $1M to $15M.  Grants will be made for a period up to 5 years.

Smart Scholars

This program targets grants to partnerships consisting of institutions of higher education and public schools (especially those serving students in high need/very high need schools), charter schools, and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). The goal is to systemically create early college high school partnerships through which students will have an opportunity to take an accelerated program of study to complete a high school diploma while earning college credits.
