Two University of Northern Colorado students are among 11 students from Colorado colleges selected to receive highly coveted U.S. Department of State scholarships to study abroad this year.
Nathan Mueller, a junior, will spend the current spring semester and next fall semester studying Japanese and Asian Studies in Tokyo. Deborah Hawley, also a junior, will study Fine Arts in Tanjun Malim, Malaysia, this semester. Both received $5,000 scholarships to help defray their expenses.
The scholarships are administered by the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, which is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.
The program, now in its 10th year, provides awards for U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.
Approximately 2,300 scholarships are awarded annually.
