The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) has awarded $6 million in grants to researchers in Lehigh’s College of Education to fund three separate research projects: mathematical skill development in preschool children, interventions for at-risk students headed to college or careers, and online behavioral parent education for young children at-risk for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

“The College of Education IES grants will help to extend and deepen our work in two essential areas: contributing high-quality research to our fields of study and supporting community development in our related professional fields,” said College of Education Dean William Gaudelli. “Lehigh faculty again demonstrate that their research is valued by funders because of its importance to scholars and practitioners. We applaud their achievements and look forward to the great work that will be created as a result of these efforts.”
