2021 Project Citizen Research Program’s National Showcase

The Project Citizen Research Program (PCRP) is funded by a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education that allows the Center for Civic Education and Georgetown University to study the efficacy of Project Citizen with teachers and students new to the curriculum. The country was divided into five regions for this grant. Teachers first participated in a regional showcase.
