University of Nebraska–Lincoln students Therin Baum, Alexander Mallory and Grant Potter have been awarded Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships to study abroad during the spring 2016 semester.
The award is a nationally competitive scholarship awarded three times a year to undergraduate students seeking to study or intern abroad. Gilman scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply toward their study abroad or internship program costs, or up to $8,000 if they are studying a critical need language. The program aims to diversify the students who study and intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go.
Baum and Mallory will study the Czech language and Central European culture/history during a 10-week Nebraska Semester Abroad program in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
Potter is attending Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan, to study art and Japanese language/culture.
