LAS Grant Award

October 3, 2018

The US Department of Education (DOE) awarded the Latin American Studies (LAS) program a grant of $184,000 to enhance its LAS degree programs. The grant, America: Believing in Cultural Diversity will develop 9 new projects throughout Latin America and the Caribbean providing students with new opportunities to expand their knowledge of Latin America through short term programs, internships, and in-service programs. The new grant builds on a former US DOE grant for $148,000, America: Bridging the Continents which was awarded in 2014 and resulted in a number of new opportunities for students to study in Latin America and improve native Spanish language skills in a Spanish Heritage program in southern Spain.
