Students Receive Scholarships to Study Abroad in India

April 09, 2008

Has going to India always been a dream of yours? What about studying in India for a semester?Mount Union College is making this dream a reality for two students: Brittany Rivers, a freshman Japanese and psychology major, and Jesus Sanchez, a sophomore international business and economics major.According to Dr. Frank Triplett, professor of foreign languages and director of international programs, Mount Union College is offering two scholarships for full tuition to Christ College in Banglore, India.This scholarship is only one part of Mount Union's Asia Initiative. This program was announced by President Giese last summer and has been led by Dr. William Coleman, assistant to the president on diversity affairs, to promote study in Asia."The funding for this program is coming from Mount Union's general fund," said Dr. Triplett. "I think I am most impressed that Mount Union is making it possible for students to study in Asia."Each applicant had two applications to complete - one for the full-tuition scholarship and the other for the University Study Abroad Consortium program (USAC). The applications included essays and references. The applications were passed to a subcommittee for international education, and the applicants were also considered on the basis of their grade point average and the relationship between the experience and their future goals."One of the cool things is the opportunity for Mount Union students to study in places different from typical study abroad locations," said Michael Guyer, program assistant for the office of international affairs. "This experience is even more important because of India's rising influence internationally."The experience will allow the students to live with other international students and travel.Once returning to Mount Union, the students will be giving presentations to promote the study abroad in Asia program. They will be presenting at Preview and Orientation, in LS 100 classes and talking with other students about their experience.Rivers said, "We are going over there to create and strengthen ties between Christ College, Bangalore and Mount Union. We may be the first to go over there, but I'm sure we won't be the last."The program begins in June and ends in early November.
