Congratulations to Dr. Cheryl Ayers, co-director of the Center for Economic Education at Virginia Tech, for the renewal of grant funding support for the United States Economic Empowerment Project. With the leadership of Dr. Ayers, the goal of this project is to provide low socioeconomic and low educational attainment adults an opportunity to learn basic economics, personal finance, and entrepreneurship knowledge and skills required to make better economic decisions and to effectively participate in the U.S. entrepreneurially-driven economy. The Calvin K. Kazanjian Economics Foundation Inc. is supporting the U.S. Economic Empowerment Project through an on-going grant. The Kazanjian Foundation is a non-profit educational organization with a focus on economic illiteracy.
