Cultural diversity grant awarded

The University of Findlay has received nearly $80,000 in grants to help bring more cultural diversity to Hancock County classrooms.
The project, called “Japan Beyond the Automobile Industry,” will be led by Hirokai Kawamura, chair of the Department of Language and Culture, according to the university.
The program will attempt to integrate Japanese culture into kindergarten through 12th-grade classrooms.
The project will also allow for two education students and 10 teachers from Findlay and Hancock County schools to travel to Japan for a month this summer, according to the university.
The university received $70,000 from Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad, and $9,550 from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation in Cleveland.
