We recognize the generous support from the University of California system. UC President Janet Napolitano helped launch this network by granting CTERIN with the 2017 President's Research Catalyst Award which provided $1.5 million in seed funding. This award is specific to advancing multicampus, interdisciplinary research in areas of strategic importance to California and the world, further upholding the UC tradition of supporting ideas and actions that stem from diverse collectives.

Researchers from the California Teacher Education Research and Improvement Network (CTERIN) received a $250,656 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Generous support from the foundation will allow researchers to examine features of California preparation programs in relation to teacher employment and retention in greater depth. Such an approach can help guide future improvement efforts, initiatives to diversify the teaching force, and investments in program pathways in the state.
