Mt. SAC Students Awarded Gilman International Scholarships
WALNUT, Calif.–––Four Mt. San Antonio College students have recently been awarded prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
Arianna Rivera (La Puente), Blanca Flores (La Puente), Elizabeth Gutierrez (Montclair), and Jared Morales (Covina) were awarded the scholarships, which will allow them to participate in a study abroad program in England for the fall 2013 semester. Rivera and Flores received $4,500 scholarships, while Gutierrez and Morales received $3,000 in scholarship funds.
The students will attend classes in London where they will study British culture, philosophy, literature, and art as participants in the Southern California Foothills Consortium for Study Abroad, a cooperative venture among area community colleges.
Rivera is an art history major and plans to become a museum curator. Flores is a physical therapy major and plans to become a sports physical therapist or doctor. Gutierrez is a medical allied field major and plans to become a radiologist. Morales is also a medical allied field major and plans to become a physician assistant.
The Gilman Scholarship program provides under-represented students and students of limited financial means with the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs throughout the world. Seven hundred undergraduate students from 270 colleges and universities across the U. S. received Gilman Scholarships this year.
Mt. SAC also will offer upcoming study aboard programs in Taiwan (international business), Hawaii (geology and astronomy), and Spain during the winter and next spring.
