i3 Grant Information
NLU has received a $2.5 million innovation grant through the U.S. Department of Education to expand Reading Recovery, an early literacy intervention education initiative based in the university’s National College of Education.
The grant is part of a $45.5 million award from the U.S. Department of Education to fund the “Reading Recovery: Scaling Up What Works” project in collaboration with 15 institutions of higher education lead by the Ohio State University. NLU is the only Illinois institution to receive this funding to be disseminated to qualifying school districts over the next five years.
NLU College of Education Dean Alison Hilsabeck and Dr. Mary Ann Poparad, director of the Reading Recovery Center for Literacy in the College of Education, said the funding will allow the university to expand the successful program to some of the lowest performing schools.
