UNLV's Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach (CAEO) was awarded two Educational Opportunity Search grants. Combined these grants are funded for $2.7m and will serve over 2,000 low-income and/or first-generation adults (in zip codes with low four-year degree attainment) per year over the five-year grant period.
