Perkins Leadership Grant Opportunities

FY2019 Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) Grant 

The purpose of this competitive grant opportunity is to support Career and Technical Education Student Organizations (CTSOs) in enhancing student learning through contextual instruction, leadership and personal development, applied learning, and real world application.


FY2019 Pathways to Results Year Two: Implementation Partnerships Grant

Pathways to Results (PTR) Year Two: Implementation Partnerships expands and puts into action the work of PTR Year One: Inquiring and Planning Partnerships. This expansion occurs largely in revisiting and extending the Improvement and Evaluation process into an implementation year. Year Two requires teams to revisit their initial problem description to ensure that solutions align with the problem a team is seeking to address.


The ICCB administers several other funding opportunities that support postsecondary CTE in Illinois. Many are made available through Title I Leadership funds. These grants are offered at various times throughout the year and have specific, targeted purposes. Below are the grants that were available for Fiscal Year 2018.
