Call for Proposals

Go Alliance seeks successful proposals for presentations on recent research findings or best practices on topics related to: access to postsecondary education for underserved students; postsecondary support and success programs for underserved students; FAFSA completion programs; postsecondary counseling; or college access marketing campaigns. Suggested topics might include, for example:

  • college access outreach campaigns
  • postsecondary success programs
  • student support programs (such as College Application Week, FAFSA support, postsecondary completion support programs, etc.)
  • Proposals on better understanding and supporting particular target audiences, such as low-income students; rural students; adult learners; veterans and military connected students; Hispanic students; African American males; etc.
  • Use of social psychology or behavioral economics in college access outreach/support (such as texting campaigns and behavioral nudges)
  • Forming and sustaining successful collective impact partnerships

If your organization has developed a new or innovative program, and you are willing to discuss it, please complete a proposal. In particular, SREB seeks presentations that include data that can demonstrate a program’s effectiveness. In some cases, if proposals are similar topics, you might be asked to join a panel with other presenters, and panel members will have lead time to coordinate their presentations. You will be notified by July 26th if your presentation has been selected.
