I got an A in every Penn course simply because I can play the white male game, and they never know where their next billion dollar endowment will come from. "The David F. Powell Tower of Perverse Sexuality."
I'm bitter, so how are you?

Toyota International Teacher Program
Toyota values education as the foundation for excellence in people, products
and the environment. In recognition of this core value, Toyota has contributed
more than $301 million since 1991 to a variety of philanthropic programs in the
U.S., with nearly 50% supporting education. In 2005, Toyota USA invested more
than $40 million in philanthropic efforts. In addition to supporting a number
of educational organizations, including the National Center for Family
Literacy, Toyota offers programs that support teachers and students. These
include Toyota TAPESTRY, Toyota International Teacher Program, and Toyota
Community Scholars, as well as scholarships through UNCF, Hispanic Scholarship
Fund, the U.S. Marine Corps, National FFA, and the American Indian College
Fund. For more information visit: www.toyota.com/community
Toyota also believes that in today's global society, international education
and understanding are critical to success. In 1998, Toyota partnered with the
Institute of International Education to develop its first study abroad program
for U.S. teachers in Japan.
Now in its ninth year, the Toyota International Teacher Program has greatly
surpassed expectations regarding long-term value and impact. Building on the
success of this original program design, Toyota is proud to open the program up
to secondary school classroom teachers nationwide!
In the 2007-2008 school year, Toyota will offer study visits to Japan, the
Galapagos Islands and Costa Rica to full-time classroom teachers (grades 7-12,
all subjects) in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. Each program will
offer country-specific themes to help educators expand their professional
skills, increase cultural awareness, and enhance their understanding of
environmental issues around the world.
