Statewide Counseling Initiative to Help Indiana Schools Strengthen Student Pathways to Success

INDIANAPOLIS – Lilly Endowment Inc. is launching the Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students, a five-year effort that includes encouraging public school corporations and charter schools to explore how they help students from elementary grades through high school prepare for academic, career and personal success.

Through a request for proposals issued today, the Endowment invites public school corporations and charter schools to submit proposals for support to help them learn more about the best practices for comprehensive counseling programs in Indiana and from around the country, evaluate their current counseling programs, and develop and implement plans to enhance the quality and expand the scale of their counseling programs. The Endowment contemplates allocating up to $30 million in grants for this initiative depending on the number, size and quality of the proposals submitted, among other factors.

“The Endowment’s aim is to help school corporations and charter schools eventually implement comprehensive approaches to school counseling that address the academic, college, career, and social and emotional needs of K-12 students,” said Sara B. Cobb, the Endowment’s vice president for education.
