The Rize Prize: Fostering Innovation to Support Student Parents

When student parents rise, we all rise. In early 2020, Imaginable Futures, Lumina Foundation and leading higher education organizations launched the Rise Prize to support innovative solutions that accelerate student parent success. This new report explores eight key takeaways from Rise Prize solutions, insights about the different types of solutions that currently exist, and opportunities that remain to support and lift up Risers.

College Unbound Hosts In-Person, Socially Distanced Graduation One Student at a Time

This Saturday, August 29th, College Unbound, RI’s only college designed specifically for adults, will host its 3rd Graduation Ceremony since receiving approval from The Rhode Island Board of Education. The socially distanced ceremony will honor one student at a time over the course of the day, with short individual ceremonies for each student and their families. Many of CU’s graduates this year are front line workers, and CU is thrilled to be able to credit the work and learning that they have experienced during COVID.

College Unbound chosen as Rise Prize Choice award winner

We are thrilled to have won the Rise Prize Risers Choice award for $100,000! Accelerating postsecondary success for parenting students helps not just them, but also supports the economic mobility and well-being of their families. When student parents rise, we all rise.
