Description: 

Co-written by Colette Hadley of the National College Attainment Network and Liz Newman of the Gardner Center, this article identifies four basic approaches that community foundations can use to renovate their scholarship programs. The authors outline a process for using data and inquiry that paves the way for change, highlighting three community foundations that have altered their scholarship programs to increase equitable outcomes. By disaggregating data to illuminate disparities and using that data to ask questions, scholarship providers can identify opportunities for strategic program changes that advance equitable college attainment.
