Eligible Applicants

The Prize is open to impact-driven changemakers: companies, programs, and organizations of any type or stage in the US working on solutions directly supporting student-parent postsecondary success. This includes changemakers who are seeking to add additional products or solutions to accelerate the success of student parents.

Overview of Funding

The Prize was created by Imaginable Futures—a venture of The Omidyar Group—and Lumina Foundation, along with a group of leading partner organizations, to leverage direct investments in innovative solutions supporting student parents.

We believe that postsecondary success for parents is crucial in improving educational outcomes for entire families and supporting the journeys of millions of families to economic mobility.

Postsecondary success is defined as traditional degrees and non-traditional credential, certificate, workforce development, and alternative college pathways programs, which leads to economic mobility and overall well-being.

If your company, program, or organization is working to support and empower student parents, or you want to learn how your solution can be tailored to accelerate the postsecondary success of student parents, apply for the Rise Prize by April 6, 2023!
