2017 Aspiring Educator Scholarship Initiative

Motivis Learning, the Learning Relationship Management System designed for student-centered, personalized education models. This scholarship is aimed towards students enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate program in education. The company will award one $10,000 scholarship to a student who tells Motivis Learning how they will make a difference through teaching.


Foundation for Childhood Education Grant

Fordham University Graduate School of Education awarded a research grant of $365,000 by The Foundation for Child Development. In the next two years, the Co-PIs, Dr. Chun Zhang and Dr. Tiedan Huang, will be joining the NYC Early Childhood Research Network.  They will examine the early care and education workforce serving young dual language learners enrolled in NYC’s universal prekindergarten programs. The researchers hope to gain a better understanding of relationships among characteristics of early care and education professionals, program components and supports, and optimal classroom instructional practices. The aim is to ultimately inform and improve current New York City Universal Prekindergarten program policies and practices using rigorous empirical evidence.
