On Tuesday, the Aspen Institute announced the finalists for the 2019 Prize for Community College Excellence. The $1 million prize is the nation’s most recognized mark of excellence among community colleges, and is awarded every two years to honor schools that are leading the way in achieving student success.

Last year the Siemens Foundation partnered with the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program to create the Siemens-Aspen Community College STEM Award. The award is designed to “highlight the value that community colleges can provide individuals, communities, and businesses across the United States through excellent programs that prepare students for middle-skill jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.” Today, the second group of winners was announced at the National Skills Coalition’s Skills Summit.
