Funding for Momentum

Momentum is funded by a grant from the Walmart College Success Awards program through The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) and the Walmart Foundation.

CIC/Walmart College Success Awards
This initiative supports 50 competitively selected CIC member colleges and universities to extend, deepen, or strengthen efforts to help first-generation students succeed in college.

The Council of Independent Colleges
The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) is an association of more than 600 independent, liberal arts colleges and universities and higher education affiliates and organizations that work together to strengthen college and university leadership, sustain high-quality education, and enhance private higher education’s contributions to society. To fulfill this mission, CIC provides its members with skills, tools, and knowledge that address aspects of leadership, financial management and performance, academic quality, and institutional visibility. The Council is headquartered at One Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C.
