According to a press release from the office of U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, the grant provides funds to improve and strengthen academic quality, institutional management and fiscal stability.
"It is crucial that Texas students are provided with the resources necessary to succeed as the school year starts back up,” Cornyn said in the press release. “I’ll continue to do everything in my power to ensure Lone Star College can offer the best possible education for its students.”
LSC Executive Director Elizabeth Thompson said the grant will be used by LSC-CyFair and LSC-University Park for the development and improvement of academic programs to provide low-income students with the resources necessary to move them into core courses and program completion, including remedial education and math instruction.
The grant funding comes through the Department of Education. The grant funding is anticipated to be sustained for five years.
