The Carol and Gene Ludwig Family Foundation’s grantmaking in education is primarily focused on empowering young people from low-income backgrounds to achieve their educational and professional goals.
We invest in programs focused on college persistence that provide support to students pursuing a four-year, post-secondary degree and ultimately help them reach graduation. We also invest in programs that provide support for broader post-secondary pathways, including two-year degrees and career and workforce training programs. Our investments in education are both local to Washington, D.C., as well as national in scale.
We also invest in higher-education programs that prepare young people for careers in public service and government. Through these select strategic partnerships, we seek to empower future leaders to have a positive impact on local, national, and global public policy.
