Limitless, a Postsecondary Enrollment Learning Network

Limitless Learning Network

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is providing funding to launch a new program to help more young people in Washington state access the opportunities they need to design the future they want.

Nearly 90% of Washington’s high schoolers say that they want to continue their education after high school, but only 50% of high school graduates today go on to enroll in postsecondary programs, including two- and four-year degrees, apprenticeships, and career certifications.

Together with the local schools and organizations who know their communities best, we believe we can help close that gap.

That’s why we’re partnering with Education First to launch Limitless, a Postsecondary Enrollment Learning Network. This new funding opportunity will connect local K-12 and higher education partners with peers across Washington state, creating opportunities to share information, explore new ideas, and develop best practices together.

With Education First as the Learning Network manager, participants will:

  • Gain insight into what’s been tried and what’s working
  • Collaborate with other regions and community members to learn what’s possible to help more students move forward successfully after high school

Each regional partnership will receive up to $100,000, spread over four years, as well as technical assistance to help facilitate collaboration and develop strategic, evidence-based solutions. Partnerships will also have their travel and lodging covered for any in-person meetings or site visits.
