Finnish Project Support, 2016   

Heidi Katz received support for a Masters degree in Learning, Learning Environments and Educational Systems from the University of Turku in southwestern Finland. She is used this opportunity to research school support of student autonomy and to compare teaching methods in Finland, Spain and Cameroon. Heidi hoped to apply the educational practices she learned in Finland as a teacher in an inner-city school, specifically working with underprivileged and special needs children in the United States.
