Drs. Sean Corcoran and Jennifer Jennings were awarded a grant in the amount of $316,482 from the Heckscher Foundation for Children. The project, titled "NYC High School Application Guide: Enhancing Supports for Low Income Students to Choose High Quality High Schools," builds upon Drs. Corcoran and Jennings' work on the development of the High School Application Guide, an online app that seeks to support NYC students in the high school admissions process. This funding will support improvements on the app as well as rolling it out at scale to 8th grade-serving schools in NYC.
