Just received notice of the following:
This new national awards program will provide four $50,000 awards annually to exceptional initiatives that promote immigrant integration. The J.M. Kaplan Fund is providing support for these awards in each of the next three years to focus attention on successful integration initiatives, and to inspire and provide program models to others around the United States who might also undertake such efforts.(The organization defines immigrant integration as the two-way process by which immigrants and their children come to feel - and be - Americans and by which American identity and culture expand to reflect each new generation of immigrants.)
Application procedures and rules can be found at http://www.integrationawards.org/. The deadline for applications is January 31, 2009 at 9 p.m. EST. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
