Dallas-Based Work College Paul Quinn Gets $1M to Expand
James Paterson, Education Dive
Dallas-based Paul Quinn College has received a $1 million-grant from Strada Education Network to further its efforts to eradicate poverty through its urban work college model. College leaders will use the funding to expand the work program to Plano, Texas.
The Plano college won't have buildings. Instead, the school will work with businesses and municipalities to secure internships and classroom space and provide alternative housing options for students. All students will work to help pay their tuition.
