Extending the Dream

The Extending the Dream (ETD) grant enables members of SACAC to establish and pay for special projects in their communities.  The Extending the Dream grant is awarded annually and serves college-bound students. Many recipients of the ETD grant have served as advocates for creating pathways to college by pushing the limits on college access and increasing awareness about the college search process. The ultimate goal is to make the dream of attending college a reality for the students served. Grants typically range from $500 to $3700.
