Description: ACF plans to fund Career Pathways Secondary Data Analysis Grants to support secondary analysis of data collected to rigorously evaluate a collection of career pathways programs. Career pathways programs provide post-secondary education and training organized as a series of manageable steps leading to successively higher credentials and employment opportunities in growing occupations. Programs also provide financial, academic, and non-academic support to help primarily low-income, non-traditional students enroll and persist in education. OPRE oversees a robust research portfolio evaluating the implementation and effectiveness of career pathways programs including the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) Evaluation and the rigorous evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program (more information is available at and Data from PACE, the HPOG National Implementation Evaluation (NIE), and the HPOG Impact Study will be archived at a data repository and available for secondary analysis in early 2019. OPRE expects the archived data will be available as restricted-use files. These grants would support rigorous, policy-relevant secondary analysis of the core data sets to add to the body of knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of the implementation and effectiveness of career pathways programs. Award funding depends on availability and continued interest of the government.
