Vanderbilt attracts $2 million grant to improve country's foreign language and international fluency

Vanderbilt University's Center for Latin American Studies announced that it has been awarded an over $2 million Comprehensive National Resource Center (NRC) grant from the Department of Education:
The award totals just over $2 million for four years, an increase of 30% in our funding. Our previous designation was as an Undergraduate NRC and now we are a Comprehensive NRC, the top category. We will be able to fund additional graduate students through our Foreign Language Area Studies program and strengthen all of our teaching, outreach, and service programs.
The U.S. government's NRC program is designed to promote "a national capacity" in foreign languages and international studies.
