Congratulations to Tiffany Wendt, a Nazareth College junior majoring in biology, the recipient of a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. The Gilman Program encourages students to select non-traditional study abroad destinations. Tiffany will be studying at Veritas University, Costa Rica, through the American Institute of Foreign Study (AIFS Abroad).
The scholarship process is very competitive. Students must have an outstanding academic record and must submit a proposal for a project relating to their international program following the completion of the the semester abroad. The Gilman scholarship program is funded through the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000 and is sponsored by the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.
With the opening of the new Integrated Center for Math and Science in fall 2012, the College will better meet the needs of all its students, regardless of major or discipline. The building will feature state-of-the art classrooms and labs that all undergraduate students will use during their time at Nazareth. These students will then go on to become the health care workers, educators, scientists, artists, businesspeople, activists, and professionals who will transform this region and beyond for years to come.
