Applications for the UWorld AP Success Grant open to all schools and districts through March 31 to support implementation of research-based strategies that improve equity and achievement
DALLAS (February 24, 2022) – UWorld, a worldwide leader in online learning to prepare for high-stakes exams, is accepting applications for its AP Success Grant for the 2022-2023 school year. The UWorld AP Success Grant is designed to help schools and districts build equity in their AP programs by providing high-quality teaching and learning tools to support all AP teachers and students. U.S. high schools and K-12 school districts can apply by March 31.
Student performance in AP courses and on exams are indicators of college readiness, according to the Redefining Ready initiative of AASA, the School Superintendents Association. However, 40% of students who take an AP exam do not earn a passing score, and a performance gap persists between white students and their minority counterparts. AP success is within the reach of each and every student when given the right resources and support. In the inaugural year of the grant program, UWorld awarded $62,000 in AP instructional resources to schools for the 2021-2022 school year.
“UWorld grants are an extension of the mission we’ve had since our founding: to empower people to achieve their goals through education,” said Chandra S. Pemmasani, M.D., UWorld’s founder and CEO. “At a time when educators, students and schools are facing significant pandemic-related challenges, the UWorld AP Success Grant can help remove barriers to success and provide critical assistance, and we hope, a little peace of mind.”
UWorld’s Learning Tools for AP Courses make the rigor of AP curriculum understandable for students, manageable for teachers, and provide valuable program insights to administrators. The grant recipients will receive access to UWord’s online Learning Tools for AP Courses for all available AP subjects for the 2022-2023 school year. The Learning Tools include content for students, assignment tools and progress monitoring for teachers, and assessments and reporting at the student, class, campus, and district levels. Schools will also receive personalized implementation training and ongoing support.
UWorld’s exam-like questions and answer explanations are modeled after the College Board® curriculum and are updated weekly to ensure rigor and alignment to current AP courses and tests. In-depth content, mini-lessons, embedded student support, and industry-leading illustrations help students understand and retain information. UWorld focuses on research-based strategies that support instruction, improve engagement, and build critical-thinking skills so that students have the knowledge and confidence to succeed and are college course-work ready.
