ATHENS, Ohio (May 3, 2007) -- Two Ohio University students have learned they'll have all expenses paid for their study-abroad experiences next year.
Junior political science major Matt Bush has been awarded a National Security Education Program David L. Boren Undergraduate Scholarship to study in China next fall, and sophomore political science and German major Sharlene Cleveland has earned a German Academic Exchange Service Undergraduate Scholarship, also known as a DAAD Scholarship, to study next year in Leipzig, Germany.
With his Boren Scholarship, Bush will take classes next fall at The Beijing Center for Chinese Studies. Cleveland, also a McNair Scholar, will take courses and begin work on her senior thesis, which will address immigration issues.
Both Bush and Cleveland named acquiring language skills among their top goals for their trips. The students also were quick to acknowledge the support numerous faculty and administrators played in their success.
"Without her helping me on this," Cleveland said of assistance from Ann Brown, director of the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards, "I'm not sure how I could have come this far."
