The Bronx Institute at Lehman College has been awarded grants by Con Edison and The Edwin Gould Foundation. The grants are for the Institute’s Engaging Latino Communities for Education (ENLACE) academic enrichment program, which serves high performing Latino students from Bronx public schools.
The program, which meets year-round at the College and is developed and implemented by Lehman and Bronx Institute faculty, is nationally and internationally known for its innovative curriculum in math and science. ENLACE currently serves eighth, ninth, eleventh, twelfth, and college cohorts.
“We are very grateful to these foundations for their generous and continuing support of ENLACE,” said Professor Herminio Martinez, executive director of The Bronx Institute and a member of the Department of Middle and High School Education at Lehman. “Their support is critical because multi-year funding is a key to building successful academic enrichment programs.”
