The three-year $400,000 Community College Transfer Initiative (CCTI) grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation creates the pathway for high-achieving, low-income community college students from Montgomery County Community College and the Community College of Philadelphia to transfer to Bryn Mawr College to complete their baccalaureate degrees.

The program is part of a national initiative funded by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, which was established in 2000 by the Estate of Jack Kent Cooke to help young people of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education.  Montgomery County Community College has participated in a similar initiative with Bucknell University since 2006.
