Students receive scholarships to study internationally

Seven St. Kate’s students have won scholarships to support their international studies at Universities in South Korea, China, Argentina and Japan. They are among 29 St. Kate's students studying abroad during the fall 2010 semester.

An eighth, Elizabeth Arion ‘13, earned an Arcadia abroad scholarship to study this summer at the University of Salerno in Italy.

Three students were awarded the prestigious Benjamin A Gilman Institutional scholarship and two were awarded Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) John E. Boman Travel grants. Other funding sources included a CIEE-International Study Program (ISP) Scholarship, CIEE Robert B. Bailey Scholarship and an IES Abroad need-based scholarship.

Six are second-year students and one is a senior.

“Last year's first year class really impressed me with their level of organization and drive to achieve,” said Global Studies Assistant Director Raine de Campeau. “It is inspiring to work with them.”

Dawn Vang, Ntshiashee Lee, Pachia Vang and Mai Thao Xiong (all ’13) will all be studying at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea.
