Laurette Kirstein Scholarship Recipients

The Office of International Services (OIS) is happy to announce the eight winners of the 2015 Laurette Kirstein Scholarship. Eight 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.
