Yianni Alepohoritis (Federal Government)
Management and Program Analyst, U.S. Department of Education
I am a Management and Program Analyst at the U.S. Department of Education. I serve as a Program Officer for the Education Innovation and Research Program (EIR)–formerly the Investing in Innovation Fund (i3)-within the Office of Innovation and Improvement (OII) at the U.S. Department of Education.
I wear many hats in my position with EIR. Some of the roles include being a steward of the taxpayer dollar by monitoring my program’s grantees for fiscal compliance, helping manage the competition process in which applicants compete for federal grants, and fostering communities of practice amongst our grantees and the educational field at large by leading the planning of our annual conference as well as other dissemination efforts.
The work of my program is important to public service because it provides grants to tackle persistent educational challenges and improve student achievement for high-need students. It does so by generating, validating, and scaling evidence-based solutions in order to serve substantially larger numbers of students throughout the country
