MSJC gets federal grant

Mt. San Jacinto College has received a $2.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education that it will use to help students stay in school and improve graduation and transfer rates.

The five-year grant, a Title V Hispanic-Serving Institution Grant, is scheduled to begin on Oct. 1.

“I am thrilled that Mt. San Jacinto College received this generous grant from the department of education,” said Roger Schultz, superintendent, and president of Mt. San Jacinto College, in a statement. “It will provide resources that will allow us to implement practices to support our students.”

In May, more LatinX students graduated from Mt. San Jacinto College and earned more awards than in the college’s nearly 60-year history: 1,061 LatinX graduates – about half the school’s graduating class – earned 1,905 degrees and certificates.

Mt. San Jacinto College received similar grants from the education department in 2015, 2010, and 2003.
