Grants to USA institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations partnering with IHEs to encourage eligible agricultural workers and their family members to pursue post-high school studies. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of CAMP is to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers and members of their immediate family to complete their first academic year of college, and to continue in postsecondary education.

This competition includes one competitive preference priority and one invitational priority:

Competitive Preference Priority: Consideration of Prior Experience. The Secretary will consider the applicant's prior experience in implementing its expiring CAMP project, based on information that includes:

  • The number of CAMP participants served;
  • The percentage of CAMP participants completing the first academic year of their postsecondary education program;
  • The percentage of CAMP participants who, after completing the first academic year of college, continue their postsecondary education; and
  • The extent to which the applicant met administrative requirements.

Note: This competitive preference priority applies to expiring projects (current CAMP grantees in their final budget period) that first received their current CAMP award in FY 2017.

Invitational Priority: Meeting Student Social, Emotional, and Academic Needs. Projects that are designed to improve students' social, emotional, academic, and career development, with a focus on underserved students, through one or both of the following:

  • Creating a supportive, positive, identity-safe, and inclusive climate for students who are migratory or seasonal farmworkers or immediate family members of such workers.
  • Fostering partnerships, including across government agencies ( e.g., housing, human services or employment agencies), local educational agencies, community-based organizations, adult learning providers, and postsecondary education institutions, to provide comprehensive services to students who are migratory or seasonal farmworkers or immediate family members of such workers, to support student social, emotional, mental health and academic needs.
