The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded a total of $622,000 in grants to Achieve Atlanta and the Atlanta Public Schools to support their efforts for college success.

One grant for $532,000 will go to the Network for School Improvement. That will enable Achieve Atlanta to work with the APS data team to build a technical platform that will allow students to identify good “match and fit” colleges while they are in high school.
