SPU Receives Education Grants

The School of Education is pleased to announce that Professor of Education Greg Fritzberg and doctoral candidate Suzannah Calvery have successfully partnered with 13 Seattle public schools in obtaining a total of $340,000 in City of Seattle and Washington state grants for the 2012-13 academic year. These grants will be devoted to case management, classroom assistance, and tutoring for low income and/or high risk youth.

Twelve of these 13 schools are in Seattle’s south end and central area. The funding will provide approximately 75 part-time jobs for Seattle Pacific and other local university students. The grants will be funneled through the nonprofit organization "University Tutors for Seattle Students," which Professor Fritzberg directs.
