Awards funded in 2011-12

Grants for 2011-12 top $3 million 
Competition for grants increased in the 2011-12 academic year, resulting in fewer funding opportunities. For this reason and to align with the PSU Cradle to Career initiative, the GSE worked toward, and successfully submitted larger proposals to a wider variety of funding agencies. More cross-campus, cross-discipline proposals involving more external partners than ever were sought  that included active participation from schools, districts, the City of Portland, the State of Oregon (with letters of support coming from both Senators Wyden and Merkley, and Congressman Blumenaur), other colleges and universities (PCC, OSU, OHSU, UO), for-profit entities, corporations, and private partners. 
While the GSE submitted fewer proposals in 2011-12, we received several substantial new awards that have helped maintain the same level of funding as in previous years. The grant proposals awarded in 2011-12 will bring in approximately $3,000,000 over the next five years.
