California State University, Sacramento Sacramento State Leader

Sac State lands nearly $900,000 for new student research

Department of Education grantA new five-year, $895,326 grant from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) to launch a project for student researchers reinforces Sacramento State’s status as a regional leader in innovation.

The project, called Pathways: Successful Transitions To and Through Higher Education and funded through the DOE’s Institute of Education Sciences, will create training programs to develop a more diverse field of education researchers.

“This grant will give us the funding to work toward becoming a national model for a pathways training program, providing Sacramento State the opportunity to build the next generation of researchers,” says President Robert S. Nelsen.

Pathways will get underway in January. The upper-level undergraduate and master’s degree students chosen for the program will spend a year researching the barriers faced by underrepresented students as they go from high school into community college and/or a four-year university. The grant will allow for as many as 60 fellows, primarily drawn from organizations and programs that support minority populations at Sac State.
