Pittsburgh Assistance Center for Educators and Students
Good News! PACES is pleased to announce our former intern, Gabrielle Kozlowski, was awarded a Pitt University Honors College Community-Based Research Fellowship for the spring 2017 semester! We are even happier to report Gabby used her fellowship to help PACES! PACES served as the community partner for Gabby's research. Gabby researched, consulted with her faculty mentors, and worked with PACES director Emily Lilly to develop a studio arts outreach program for a local public high school. In this uncertain political and funding climate, PACES remains committed to doing what we can to ensure public school students in Allegheny County receive enriching educational opportunities. Sincere thanks to Gabby and the University of Pittsburgh for helping us maintain this commitment.
