News from Research and Sponsored Projects
March 26, 2021
This month we highlight upcoming COE internal funding opportunities and recognize the important work that our students and colleagues are engaged with that has real impact in our community. 

College of Education Internal Funding Opportunities
The College of Education offers internal grant competitions to fund a wide range of research activities, including dissertation completion grants. Click here for detailed information. Applications are due April 9th! Please make sure to submit your project. 

Participating in internal funding opportunities is a great way to further your work. Awardees from the 2020-2021 competition were successful in securing extramural funding (Dr. Sam Song) and honored for their grant-related research (Dr. Patrice Leverett). 

Research with Impact
The ORSP recently launched a new series on our website called Impact. This series shares stories of research projects conducted by our COE faculty, students, and staff that have real-world impact. Jonah Shulman, the graduate assistant for the ORSP, has worked to develop these stories and posts them every two weeks. Please take a look at the stories about the great work being conducted by the COE and reach out to the ORSP if you have a story you’d like to share. 

See below for a new grant awarded to faculty in CSH that is designed to directly influence the quality of mental health services provided to students in Nevada. Congratulations, Drs. Wood, Leverett & Hoskins!
