Albany State University has received a $3 million grant to help research ways families can get access to a high-quality K-12 education.

“We were excited to announce Albany State University as our third HBCU partner at the State of Opportunity in America Summit held in Washington, D.C.,” said Gerard Robinson, executive director, Center for Advancing Opportunity. “I am proud to have ASU join the CAO family of very impressive scholars working to find solutions to barriers to educational success in fragile communities.”

The Center for Educational Opportunity will focus on ways to discover and uncover educational models, accessibility practices, innovations, and opportunities that can be operationalized, sustained, and shared in communities with the greatest need.

The five-year grant was awarded by the Thurgood Marshall College Fund’s Center for Advancing Opportunity, an initiative supported by grants from the Charles Koch Foundation and Koch Industries.
