The Office of International Services (OIS) is happy to announce the five winners of the 2013 Laurette Kirstein Scholarship. Five awards of $5,000 each (in the form of a student account credit for tuition, books, and living expenses) are awarded to international students who display academic excellence. We received over 100 applications from qualified students, making the selection process difficult.
Ms. Kirstein, the first Director of this Office, generously bequeathed an endowment to promote international students and their contributions to UIC’s diverse community. The recipients are:
Alireza Bahramirad, College of Urban Planning and Policy
Danmeng Liu, College of Applied Health Sciences
Sibongile Malynga, College of Nursing
Juexing Shao, College of Education
Aimee Thompson, College of Applied Health Sciences
Please join us in congratulating the recipients!
