Grant Spotlight: AP Comp Gov UK Trip

October 16, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

If you want a small taste of the Britishness in store for the MLWGS students going on Mr. McGuire’s AP Comparative Government trip to the UK this winter, we recommend calling UK Parliament for the hold message alone.  “Have you thought about taking afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the River Thames? You are currently #2 in the queue.”  Mr. McGuire’s AP Comparative Government trip to Canada has become something of an institution at MLWGS.  This is the first year that he is planning this additional international trip to expand students’ real world understanding of comparative government.  In addition to offsetting the airfare costs for all students on the trip, a Foundation grant covered the cost of private tours of UK Parliament for all students attending.  Private tours can be tailored to the interests of the groups attending and can include the Queen’s Robing Room, Royal Gallery, Lords Chamber, Members’ Lobby, Commons Chamber and Westminster Hall.  Faculty members who are willing to go above and beyond the demands of their job to create opportunities for students like this UK trip are part of what make MLWGS an exceptional place to learn.  The Foundation is proud to help make these trips possible through grant funding.

The 2018-19 Annual Fund supports all of our enhancement grants.  Make your gift here.
