Awards Poise Students for “Life-Changing Experiences” Abroad

Congrats to the IIP Students that received awards during the 2017 International Division Scholarship Award Ceremony. 

“If you go into an experience knowing a lot, you will return knowing even more.”

School of Education Dean Diana Hess offered these words of advice to during  the 2017 International Division Scholarship Award Ceremony. Members of the university community, along with family members and donors, gathered in the Gordon Dining and Event Center on December 5 to celebrate the latest cohort of students receiving awards to studyintern, and research abroad.

Hess remarked that even though the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a top university for students participating in study abroad programs and other international experiences, it is still rare for students to travel outside of the United States. She called the programs “incredible privileges” and encouraged students to take full advantage of their experiences and allow others to learn through them once they return.

Associate Dean Richard Keller delivered remarks on behalf of the International Division. Keller offered words of congratulations to the students on what he was sure would be “life-changing experiences.” He also noted that many of the programs were only possible through the outstanding generosity of donors, who provided funds to support many of the awards.
