ND Receives Two Grants To Support Student 
ND recently received two grants from Foundations in Education. The first grant, "Community Building with 3D Printing", was awarded to Kathy Almeida, Chair of the Notre Dame Science Department and moderator of the STEM Club. The $12,000 grant will be used to purchase three 3D printers and related equipment. With these resources, students will give back to the community. The students will become active participants in "The Helping Hand Project" which focuses on providing prosthetic devices to children in need. 
The second grant, "Performing Arts in Catholic Education" was awarded to Sally Hong, ND's Dance teacher. The $4,800 grant will be used to support the school's Arts program. Funding will update the current sound system, purchase dance shoes, costumes, and props for future ND performances, and allow students to attend a Broadway show and take a dance workshop with a current cast member. 
An awards ceremony took place on February 1 at the home of the Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano, fifth Bishop of Bridgeport and Acting Chairperson of Foundations in Education. 
Thanks to the generosity of its donors, Foundations in Education continues
its ongoing commitment to strengthening and transforming Catholic education. To learn more about Foundations in Education, please visit the Foundations in Education website at: www.foundationsineducation.org
