(Re)Engage Alabama Grant Program

Other Useful Links

The (Re)Engage Alabama Grant Program was made possible through the Alabama Act 2023-539 to increase the number of Alabama adults with college degrees, to encourage adults who have earned some college credit hours to return to college and complete a college degree program connected with the workforce development needs aligned with Alabama’s high demand occupation list, and to establish a grant program that will provide financial assistance to adult learners for postsecondary education in the state of Alabama. Chapter 300-4-13 of the Alabama Commission on Higher Education’s Administrative Code provides the definitions and procedures for the (Re)Engage program.
