U.S. Department of Education awards funding to Can-Am Center

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded a four-year grant of $1,448,000 to the Canadian-American Center, University of Maine, to support a National Resource Center (NRC) on Canada and to provide Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships for graduate students studying North American French.  The Canadian-American Center will use the NRC funds to further the study of Canada and Canada-US relations by supporting outreach to American K-12 teachers and faculty, faculty teaching and research, expansion of library holdings, public lectures and academic programing, and administration of the Center.  The NRC and FLAS programs are the U.S. government’s principal means of supporting international and foreign language education at the university level.  The Canadian-American Center has been a federally-designated National Resource Center on Canada since 1979.  It is the lead partner in a consortium with the Center for the Study of Canada, SUNY-Plattsburgh.  The University of Maine is the only state institution in New England to have a National Resource Center and Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowships.
