The program provides Federal financial assistance in the form of grants to institutions of higher education, public and private agencies and organizations, combinations of institutions, agencies, and organizations and in exceptional cases secondary schools. These grants enable grantees to establish and operate projects designed to identify qualified youths with potential for education at the postsecondary level and encourage them to complete secondary school and undertake a program of postsecondary education, publicize the availability of financial assistance and encourage persons who have not completed programs of education at the secondary or postsecondary level to reenter such programs.
