UA Crossroads Collaborative Funding Reaches $1M

The UA-led Crossroads Collaborative has received another Ford Foundation grant, bringing the total amount funded to $1.06 million.

Having already successfully completed the first phase of an initiative aimed at involving youth in creative processes and informing conversations about youth rights, members of the University of Arizona Crossroads Collaborative are entering the second phase of the initiative. 

The project, jointly led by UA researchers Stephen T. Russell and Adela C. Licona, was funded initially by the Ford Foundation for two years at $730,000. Since the first award was made at the start of 2011, the foundation has provided an additional grant at $330,000 to fund the program through 2014. All told, that brings funding to $1.06 million.
