U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) announced $60,000 in grant funding for Rutgers University-Camden from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for a project titled “Latinos, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Making of Multiracial America After the 1960s.” The grant is one of five grants New Jersey received from NEH for a total of $990,000 in funding.
“The faculty at Rutgers University–Camden are some of the best and brightest in the country,” said Congressman Norcross. “These competitive grants support cultural institutions, projects and partnerships that represent the highest level of quality and public engagement in the humanities – and Dr. Thomas’ research into America’s Latino communities and the important role they’ve played in our nation’s history will be used by students for years to come. I look forward to seeing the results of this grant.”
