Title V - Pathways to Success
Palm Beach State College’s Student Services department was recently awarded a five-year,
Title V, $2.6 million dollar grant from the Department of Education (DOE). This grant,
which supports Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI’s), is intended to implement college-wide
practices that, if successful, will promote institutional change. The College has
committed to institutionalizing these best practices, and will sustain several key
personnel positions beginning in year four.
Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Initiative
HSI's are defined as colleges and universities where Hispanic enrollment constitutes a minimum of 25% of the total enrollment. This designation qualifies an institution of higher education to receive grants under the Title V Program administered by the U.S. Department of Education. These Title V funds can be used for programs and services that benefit the entire Palm Beach State student body.
HSI Parent & Student Resources
These resources are provided to help parents and students navigate through some of the agencies, organizations, and institutions that can provide opportunities for scholarships and career exploration. In addition to this information, we have also included resources to help parents and students work together to prepare for college.
