Project Vision received a $493,350 grant from the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The project, which is in its fifth year, is designed to increase the number of Head Start teachers who earn undergraduate and graduate degrees in early childhood education. It has partnership agreements with several Head Start agencies throughout the state. These partnerships have yielded 70 Project Vision Head Start teachers, with 28 graduating with a bachelor of science degree in early childhood education. Under this latest funding, these same students now have an opportunity to receive tuition and books to earn a master's degree in pre-elementary education. So far, the initiative has received $2.46 million total funding. Project Vision is directed by Dr. Arletha McSwain, Associate Dean of the School of Extended Learning, and is housed in the School of Education.
