In 2004 NEO received a $440,861 grant from the U.S. Department of Education
Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE). The grant
competition is designed to support innovative reform projects that hold promise
as models for the resolution of important issues and problems in postsecondary
education. NEO is honored to have received this prestigious grant award.
It is our goal to expand our educational programs and share the success of our
program so that other educational programs can utilize this model and
benefit from the experiences learned.
