Laurette Kirstein Scholarship Recipients

The Office of International Services (OIS) is happy to announce the five winners of the 2014 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:


          Kanishka Garg, College of Engineering

          Miyoung Kim, College of Applied Health Sciences

          Evgeniia Igolkina, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

          Bianca Ramiro, College of Nursing

          Abena Sasu, College of Education


Please join us in congratulating the recipients!
