An update on C&T faculty-conducted research: Last May, Dr. Barbara Bradley was awarded a $135,000 grant from the National Endowment for Financial Education to study young children's development of financial and college-bound identities. The project is collaborative with researchers from the School of Social Welfare, the Departments of Sociology and Linguistics, & the School of Education. Her study is part of a larger project providing savings accounts and financial education to kindergartners in the LPS and following the children and their family members for several years to look at outcomes related to financial and college-bound identity formation in 2 experimental groups and one control group.
