COLLEGE PREPARATION INTERVENTION PROGRAM (CPIP)
Purpose: The College Preparation Intervention Program (CPIP) is a State grant program which supports Maryland’s college access and completion goals as defined in Maryland Ready, the State’s 2013-2017 State Plan for Postsecondary Education and the College and Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013. CPIP provides financial support for institutions of higher education (IHE) to partner with high need local education agencies (LEA) to develop and implement successful strategies that help low income and underrepresented students complete high school and enroll in college.
Authorization: Annotated Code of Maryland, Education Article, Subtitle 7. College Preparation Intervention Program, §§ 11-701 through 11-705.
Support to GEAR UP: This annual competitive grant program supports the federally funded Maryland Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for
Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) as the state matching fund. CPIP, an early intervention program, requests that higher education institutions form partnerships with at least one high need local education agency. Additional LEAs, community organizations and businesses may be included as partners to provide program interventions that encourage young people--especially students from low income communities--to aim higher, study harder, and take the courses required for college admission and success.
Eligibility: An accredited Maryland public or independent two- or four-year institution of higher education. Partnerships between a lead higher education institution and a non-profit organization are welcome.
