RFP: Postsecondary CTE System Reform

A part of the CTE Leadership Collaborative

October 01, 2020

ECMC Foundation is accepting proposals from organizations or institutions interested in developing and managing a program to support postsecondary system leaders at the state, regional, and/or local level. The goal of this program is to assist leaders at the system level positioned to scale effective practices and support efficient policies to improve outcomes for postsecondary CTE programs. This competitive grant process will lead to the identification of one organization or self-identified coalition of organizations to receive funding.

Proposed concepts should include a plan to recruit and select diverse program participants, offer innovative programming to build a community of practice among participants, and provide ongoing support for professionals seeking to advance in their career and/or refine their skills. The ideal program will engage participants throughout their involvement, allow for the exchange of ideas, and offer mentorship opportunities. Proposals should be sector agnostic and national in scope. Applicants should indicate the number and size of cohort(s) they will assemble and the experience level appropriate for the program participants.

ECMC Foundation is releasing this RFP as part of the CTE Leadership Collaborative (LC), an initiative focused on bringing together diverse perspectives and equipping leaders with the tools, resources and skills needed to advance postsecondary CTE.


In order to be considered for this opportunity, interested organizations must submit a Letter of Inquiry via ECMC Foundation’s online form.

The deadline to apply is 5:00 PM (PT) on Monday, November 2, 2020. Final notifications will be issued no later than November 6, 2020. The organization selected will be asked to submit a full proposal (including a detailed action plan and budget) to ECMC Foundation by November 20, 2020.
