organizations and in exceptional cases secondary schools. These grants 
enable grantees to establish and operate projects designed to identify 
qualified youths with potential for education at the postsecondary 
level and encourage them to complete secondary school and undertake a 
program of postsecondary education, publicize the availability of 
financial assistance and encourage persons who have not completed 
programs of education at the secondary or postsecondary level to 
reenter such programs.
