iGraduate Montana


The iGraduate Montana initiative is in partnership with the Office of Public Instruction and the Montana Department of Labor and Industry to leverage the successes and lessons learned from Graduation Matters Montana. iGraduate Montana seeks to increase high school graduation and expand workforce development activities, such as connecting students to high-demand career pathways, and/or post-high school education opportunities. The grant funded communities will work to catalogue and disseminate their activities across the state.

Good news!  We have extended the deadline for the sustainability grants! 
Please submit the required information between now and September 9.  Continue to watch this website for other updates.
