Biology Major Receives International Scholarship

Congratulations to Tiffany Wendt, a Nazareth College junior majoring in Biology, the recipient of a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship.

The Gilman Program encourages students to select non-traditional study abroad destinations.  Tiffany will be studying at Veritas University, Costa Rica, through the American Institute of Foreign Study (AIFS Abroad).

The scholarship process is very competitive.  Students must have an outstanding academic record and must submit a proposal for a project relating to their international program following the completion of the the semester abroad.

The Gilman scholarship program is funded through the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000 and is sponsored by the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.

Founded in 1924, Nazareth College is a coeducational college with undergraduate and graduate studies in the liberal arts and sciences and professional programs in health and human services, education, and management. The College is located on 150 scenic acres near Rochester, New York, and currently enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate and 1,000 graduate students. Nazareth has a strong commitment to experience-based learning and civic engagement. In the past decade, Nazareth has produced 18 Fulbright recipients and two Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowships.
