Undergraduates Win Nationally-Competitive Scholarships
January 24, 2012
One current undergraduate student and a recent alumna were recently awarded prestigious national awards to support studies and work internationally.
Daniel Hill, currently a senior at the School, spent the fall semester at the Vienna University (VU) of Economics and Business Administration after winning the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. The nationally competitive award is open to any U.S. undergraduate student who intends to study abroad. The Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration is one of the most prestigious and oldest business schools in Europe.
Also this past fall, the Spanish Cultural Ambassador Teaching Grant was awarded to Joy Ambler (BBA ‘10), who majored in marketing and international finance. The program, which is supported by Spain’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, aims to promote understanding and appreciation of different cultures. Ambler received a grant to teach at a school in Madrid.
The University’s Office of Prestigious Awards and Fellowships helps identify students who are eligible for national and international awards, promotes awareness of external scholarship and fellowship opportunities, and provides mentoring to help students prepare the strongest possible applications.
