Title III grants are, "The programs assist eligible institutions of higher education to become self-sufficient by providing funds to improve and strengthen their academic quality, and institutional, management, and fiscal stability. One-year planning grants and five-year development grants are awarded. Funds may be used for faculty development, funds and administrative management, development and improvement of academic programs, joint use of facilities, and student services."
"Institutions of higher education must meet both basic and specific eligibility requirements. A basic requirement is that an institution must be legally authorized by the State in which it is located to be a junior college or provide an educational program for which it awards a bachelor's degree; and be either accredited, pre-accredited, or making reasonable progress toward such accreditation by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or organization."
