After conducting an extensive review of research proposals, the College of Education and its Scholarship and Innovation Committee awarded more than $9,400 in Seed Grant funding to four faculty members in April.
The faculty members who received project funding were:
Dr. Daniel Henry, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Foundations, Leadership and Technology - $2,449 for "Project RISE (Resiliency in Schools Everywhere).''
Dr. Jada Kohlmeier, associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching - $2,480 for "Exploring the democratic reasoning of high school seniors through a collaborative community of practice of government teachers.''
Dr. Angela Love, assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching - $2,500 for "Effects of an Early Language and Literacy Intervention on Achievement of Low-to-Moderate Income Prekindergarten Children.''
Dr. Deborah Morowski, assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching - $2,000 for project "Implementing Culturally Relevant Teaching through the use of Multi-Cultural Literature: A Study of Teacher Beliefs on Diversity."
The college's seed grant program was established to assist new research projects that show promise for future funding. Tenured, tenure-track, nine-month and faculty members with full-time academic appointments at the levels of assistant, associate or full professor are eligible to apply for up to $2,500 in seed grant funding from a $10,000 pool.
