Congressman announces grant for Rust College
Rust College has been selected to receive a $69,295 grant from the Fulbright-Hays Group Project’s Abroad Program, Congressman Travis Childers announced Tuesday.
“This grant represents an important investment in education, and will ultimately help students broaden their perspective by gaining a better understanding of other societies” Childers said. “Because of these funds, teachers will be able to bring first-hand knowledge and experience to the classroom.”
This grant will specifically fund a five-week curriculum development seminar in Mexican studies, primarily organized in Mexico City. The project is designed to provide higher education faculty and high school teachers with rich content as they develop their curriculum in Mexican studies.
The Fulbright-Hays program provides grants to support overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor.
