About the Grant

The Provost Graduation Initiative (PGI) is available to current matriculated undergraduate degree-seeking Fresno State students to help them stay on track or get ahead in coursework needed for graduation. Students of all standings (Freshman, Sophmore, Junior and/or Senior) are welcome to apply!

Students who qualify (see eligibility requirements) may be eligible to receive a grant from the Division of Continuing and Global Education to apply towards Spring Intersession or Summer Session. Summer Semester classes are NOT eligible for PGI.

If awarded, PGI will cover the per-unit fees for ONE course (up to four units) in either Spring Intersession or Summer Session.
