FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

California State University, Dominguez Hills
Receives $1.1 Million Grant for Teacher Achievement Program


Carson, CA - Teams of K-12 teachers are positioned to complete opportunity development grants as California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). The university has received a $1.1 million grant for the Francis Collea Teacher Achievement Award Program (CTAAP). Funded by the California Postsecondary Education Commission through the federal Dwight D. Eisenhower State Grant program, CTAAP will provide funding for $100,000 grants to 10 teams of educators from throughout the state.

Dr. Joel Colbert, associate dean for the School of Education, said the school will use its $1.1 million grant from the CTAAP to continue work that is currently underway to advance opportunities for professors in California. "This money will help teams of teachers advance their technology development work and pay for lab research, travel and conference training." Colbert said this helps the grant recipients provide positive publicity for CTAAP.

Grant winners are expected to converge on the CSUDH campus for a general reception and strategy session later this summer.

Cal State Dominguez Hills has awarded more than $2.8 million to teams of educators over the past eight years under CTAAP. The program is administered within the university's school of education.

Please contact Dr. Joel Colbert at (310) 243-2747 for additional information about CTAAP.

California State University, Dominguez Hills takes pride in offering a 'World of Opportunity' to everyone who desires a quality higher education. Visit the university website at www.csudh.edu for complete information on campus curriculum and activities.
