Ashland University One of 67 Colleges and Universities Nationwide to Participate in Second Chance Pell Pilot Program

The Department of Education announced today 67 colleges and universities, including Ashland University, have been selected to participate in the new Second Chance Pell pilot program, an experiment announced in July 2015 to test whether participation in high quality education programs increases after expanding access to financial aid for incarcerated individuals.

The pilot program will allow eligible incarcerated Americans to receive Pell Grants and pursue postsecondary education with the goal of helping them get jobs and support their families when they are released. Today’s announcement builds on the Obama Administration’s commitment to create a fairer and more effective criminal justice system, reduce recidivism, and combat the impact of mass incarceration on families and communities through educational opportunity.

Ashland University will serve one of the largest student populations in this Pell pilot program, working with 1,040 students in Ohio, Louisiana and West Virginia. AU’s program utilizes secure, corrections grade Android tablets to deliver an Associate of Arts degree program to students.
