College of Education Grants

Lipscomb endeavors to make education accessible for everyone and one of the many ways we achieve this goal is through grants. Grants are need-based financial gifts individuals are not required to pay back. The College of Education (COE) is blessed with many grants which can be offered to students. This page aims to bring awareness to the work these grants achieve.


In 2023, COE received a $4.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to train mental health professionals in high-need local education agencies (LEAs) in the Nashville area. This grant will fund the college’s IMPACT (Innovative Mental Health Partnership Accessing Counselor Training) Initiative and provide full tuition for 80 students over a period of 5 years to complete a Master of Education in school counseling. Partner districts for this initiative include:

  • Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools
  • Rutherford County Schools
  • Maury County Public Schools
  • Lebanon Special School District
  • Hickman County Schools
  • Macon County Schools
  • Smith County Schools
