Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Making higher education accessible for documented and undocumented Latino students: A grant proposal
by Chavez Ramirez, Elba, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 72; 1527902
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for a program to help increase higher education enrollment and college degree attainment for documented and undocumented Latino students. This writer has selected grant writing as a means to develop a program intervention that could be tailored for Latino students enrolled in high schools in Long Beach, California. The proposed program aims to provide Latino students with education, guidance, and services, while simultaneously challenging and decreasing societal barriers that restrain Latino students from achieving upward mobility. This initiative, under the auspices of the College Readiness Program of the Community Development YMCA of Greater Long Beach, could also be adapted for other ethnic minorities who also may experience challenges that impact their ability to enroll and achieve higher education and vocational training. The actual submission for funding was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
