AT&T High School Retention Program

2012 AT&T Aspire Local High School Impact Initiative request for proposal is now open


AT&T’s Local Impact RFP will provide funding for currently operating high school retention programs consisting of elements aligned to the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) Dropout Prevention Practice Guide. AT&T is looking to support organizations that are ready to expand to serve additional students or locations, or to add components to strengthen successful programs. Payments ranging from $100,000 to $300,000 for 24 months (2012-14) are available for local programs that emphasize:
  • Service to high school students at-risk of dropping out of school, particularly 9th graders or students in transition from 8th to 9th grade
  • Intervening quickly with targeted services to help these students re-engage
  • Increasing students’ chances of earning a high school diploma
  • Preparing students for college and/or career
  • Providing substantial data to demonstrate positive outcomes
The RFP deadline is April 27, 2012. Visit for more information on the 2012 Local High School Impact Initiative and check back often for updates on AT&T Aspire. The AT&T Aspire Local High School Impact Initiative team will review and evaluate all those who respond to the RFP and make determinations as to eligibility after that time.
