The Comprehensive Counseling Initiative (CCI) for Indiana K-12 Students is a multi-year initiative launched in 2016 that seeks to significantly increase the number of Indiana students who are emotionally healthy, realize academic success, graduate from high school, obtain valuable postsecondary credentials necessary for meaningful employment, and are prepared to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.
The Counseling Initiative has included more than $49 million in grants made through noncompetitive planning grants; two rounds of competitive implementation grants to school corporations and charter schools in Indiana; and grants to help universities strengthen programs that prepare the next generation of school counselors and principals.
In late 2017, the Endowment invited eligible school corporations and charter schools in Indiana the opportunity to apply for an implementation grant in its second round of funding in the Counseling Initiative. A total of 39 school corporations and charter schools across Indiana received grants in the second round. Through the two rounds of grants a total of 96 school corporations and charter schools serving students in 43 of Indiana’s 92 counties will be working toward comprehensive counseling programs.
