Speaking about the grant, HHP chair Dr. Layne said "Study abroad programs enable our students to broaden their horizons and experience different cultures while raising awareness of the research carried out at HHP, if successful, we hope to begin having Napier students attend UH in the near future. We hope to create a sustainable student exchange program with the generous support of the McGowan Foundation."

Ms. Nora and Mr. John McGowan along with McGowan foundation treasurer Ms. Sheila McCarn are expected to meet with the students before they leave for Scotland.
