USDOE Fulbright-Hays Award
The United States Department of Education announced on March 23, 2004, that Charleston Southern University's School of Education had won a prestigiousFulbright-Hays Foundation Group Projects Abroad Grant, one of only 44 awarded nationwide. The grant provided funding for the Teaching & Learning in Ghana program's activities during the Summer of 2004.
Eleven North Carolina and South Carolina elementary, middle and high school teachers spent five intensive weeks in Ghana with the TLG program. The teachers visited historic and cultural sites throughout the country, engaged in teaching Kindergarten through 8th grade students in village schools in the Cape Coast region of Ghana and gathered information and materials to use in the development of a series of Ghana-related curriculum units for dissemination to U.S. teachers.
