Investing in the next generation makes a difference in the lives of individuals, but also builds a stronger country and a better world. Donor support allowed Nigel Wodrich to study for a semester at the prestigious Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris and attend a high-level conference on climate change. He says the experience left him “more optimistic than ever at the possibilities of my generation to resolve the challenges of our era.”
Our 2014-2015 scholarship recipients are profoundly grateful for your support.
“With this award I greatly look forward to returning to India, where I have been studying and volunteering for much of the last three years. I will go to a remote region of the Himalayas to work on an education project at a Zanskari nunnery, Dorjedzong. Recognizing that young girls in the surrounding mountainous areas did not have access to education, Dorjedzong opened its school two years ago.” – Jennifer Divall, Faculty of Education.
“I hope to use the perspective gained from my international work placement at the African School of Economics in Benin to pursue a career in the international community. Working side-by-side with students from across Africa, my motivation to study and work to my fullest potential has been multiplied tenfold.” – Phillip Spencer, Faculty of Social Sciences
“I am a full time student, passionate track and field athlete with a five day training schedule, and a part time sales representative. With these and additional dedications, meeting financial requirements such as tuition, books, and track and field memberships is often difficult, therefore any help that I can get is profoundly appreciated. Coming from a low income family, receiving this scholarship means a great deal to me.” – Gordon Cavé, Faculty of Education.
