The University of Evansville's (UE) School of Education has received a grant totaling $735,247 through the Governer's Emergency Education Relief (GEEF) Fund, which was created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

With the grant funds, the UE School of Education will focus on:

  • A free community tutoring program for students
  • Professional development for teachers and UE students to improve student outcomes

UE will be partnering with seven school corporations, including the Diocese of Evansville, Warrick County Schools, Loogootee Community Schools, North Lawrence Community Schools, Orleans Community Schools, Shoals Community Schools, and Tell City Schools.

According to UE, first preference will be given to partner schools, though the grant activities will also be open to in-service teachers and students in K-12 corporations throughout Southern Indiana.

GEER Funds were created to provide support to local educational agencies and higher education institutions to develop and improve distance learning techniques and technologies throughout the state of Indiana.
