Grow Your Own grants awarded for the second year in a row

The OSU College of Education is pleased to announce that we have again received two partner pathway “Grow Your Own” grants from the Oregon Educator Advancement Council. These grants, totaling nearly $700,000 in year one and $700,000 in year two, enable OSU to build and strengthen our district partnerships in order to diversify the teacher workforce. We are excited to be continuing this work and look forward to potential additional funding over the next few years.
