More Than $30M In Grants Awarded To Faculty
2017 has been a banner year for the college in terms of grant money awarded. Faculty in the college have more than doubled the amount of grant money received in the past three years, with new grants totaling more than $30 million.
Several grants received are for more than $1 million, including two from the U.S. Department of Education awarded to Dr. Rafael Lara-Alecio, Regents Professor in educational psychology. The grants, totaling $13.5 million, are focused on empowering teachers of English language learners (ELLs) and science education using technology for ELLs.
“Twenty-six other college faculty received awards this last year from a wide range of federal, state and local agencies to make an impact on education in our public schools, workplace issues, military children, teen pregnancy and human health,” added Dr. Bloomfield.
Those federal grants were awarded by NASA, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Department of Defense, among others. Faculty also received numerous grants from state agencies to further their research.
