CSEAS awarded federal National Resource Center grants
On July 28, 2010 CSEAS was notified that the U.S. Department of Education had awarded funding to CSEAS as a National Resource Center and additional funding to administer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships. The grant period is August 15, 2010 through August 14, 2014. The total sum of funding for both of these grants over the four-year period exceeds 2.4 million dollars.
NIU's President John Peters lauded the center at a reception to celebrate the grant and increase in funding, which was about a 45% increase since the center last received federal awards four years ago.
