Funding and Administration

MCAN has secured investment commitment from leading colleges and other funding partners to sustain the program over multiple years. By braiding together relatively small amounts of funding from multiple sources, the program does not cause a financial strain on any one organization. 

Successful applicant high schools, a local philanthropic partner, or other entity must provide a cash match for each adviser. MCAN will administer the program by employing and training the advisers.
