FEDER AL FUNDING
The Arb
receives
funding
'U' secures national
Museums for
America funds
By AUSTIN WORDELL
Daily StaffReporter
As part of a national effort to
enhance natural resources and pro-
mote environmental sustainabil-
ity efforts, the federal government
recently granted funding to Ann
Arbor's Matthaei Botanical Gar-
dens and Nichols Arboretum to help
maintain North America's largest
collection of heirloom peonies.
U.S Senator Carl Levin (D-
Mich.) announced in a July 26 press
statement that the Botanical Gar-
dens and Nichols Arboretum are
among five Michigan museums that
will receive federal grants through
the Museums for America program
to preserve local establishments.
"Michigan's Museums are
home to many important state and
national treasures, and these grants
will help share those resources with
more visitors," Levin said in the
release. "I am proud these muse-
ums were selected out of scores of
applicants nationwide, reflecting
the great work being performed by
these institutions."
According to the press release,
the University will receive $79,658
from the Museums for America
grantas well as matching funds pro-
vided by the grantee to be used on
the "Peony Initiative," which will
provide information on the Internet

following incident

The University's Global
Intercultural Experience for
Undergraduates program can-
celed an internship program
based in El Salvador and required
students to return to the United

States after three students were
robbed at gunpoint on July 29 in
the city of San Salvador.
Though none of the students
were injured, the University
required the 14 students and two
faculty leaders to leave the coun-
try because the criminal activity
was suspected to be specifically
targeting the local agency the
students were working with,
according to University spokes-
man Rick Fitzgerald.
"We're very concerned about
the level of criminal activity in
the area and the fact that the
robbers actually took their pass-

ports, had access to their itiner-
ary and knew where they were
going to be," Fitzgerald said.
Fitzgerald said the Univer-
sity could not allow students to
remain in the country because of
the risk presented in continuing
the trip and the responsibility
the University had for the stu-
dents' safety.
"We were very concerned
and wanted to make sure that
our students were safe at all
times, and we felt it was impera-
tive that they return and get out
of that unsafe situation," Fitzger-
