Slatina teacher, among winners of Google scholarships for disabled students

A Romanian who is pursuing a doctorate at a British university was among the ten names selected by Google for the scholarships granted to the worthiest disabled students who attend universities in the EU, Switzerland and Israel, HotNews reports.

Romanian Aurora Constantin taught physics for two decades at a high school in Slatina, and, at present, she is a doctoral candidate at an Edinburgh university and is taking part in a project which uses technology as a means of enabling children with autism to communicate.

Google offered, this year, ten scholarships to exceptional disabled students. The ten students selected are enrolled mostly at British universities, but also at seats of learning in Germany, Holland or Switzerland. The scholarships are valid for the 2011-2012 university year. (A.C.)
