A UNC Greensboro education research center has been awarded a $15.6-million federal grant.

The U.S Department of Education awarded the five-year grant to UNCG’s SERVE Center, which provides support and services to K-12 school systems in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

According to a news release, researchers will collaborate with education agencies and school districts in those states to ensure college and career readiness and support the region’s lowest-performing schools.

SERVE is one of 19 regional centers receiving federal funds through 2024.

In recent months, the center has also received over $6 million to continue operating the National Center for Homeless Education, and $5 million to assess a state program that offers high school students opportunities to earn credits for college or technical education programs.
