CAEO Awarded $30 million Grant

The Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach was awarded two Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs grants. Combined these grants are funded for $30 million and will serve nearly 8,000 low-income and/or first-generation students starting at seven of Clark County School District's most at-risk middle schools per year over the seven-year grant period. 

The goal of the program is to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. Key services include college-admissions and financial-aid counseling; in-class and after-school tutoring; after-school and summer academic programs; college visits; career-awareness counseling; professional-development opportunities for target school teachers; and assistance to students in their first year of postsecondary education.
