Ascendium – Program Manager (2 positions available)
Remote | Full-Time
As a national funder, Ascendium’s mission is to elevate opportunities and outcomes for learners from low-income backgrounds so they can better achieve post-secondary educational and career success. Our grantmaking focuses on transforming systems of higher education so they can support low-income populations, especially those in historically underrepresented groups who often experience inequities in accessing or achieving success within our current higher education system: first-generation students, incarcerated adults, rural community members, students of color, and veterans. Our funding supports innovative ideas, the creation of an evidence base, and the expansion and replication of effective practices to spark sustainable, system improvement.
We’re looking for two grantmakers to advance the following focus areas:
- Removing Structural Barriers to Academic Success
- Expanding High-Quality Postsecondary Education in Prison
The Program Officer serves as an integral member of the Education Grantmaking Department and within one of Ascendium’s four grantmaking focus area teams. Click here to learn more and apply.
