Nazareth College’s Center for International Education is pleased to announce that Peter Beck of Canandaigua, N.Y., Jonathan Bukowiec of Canandaigua, N.Y., Salina Fasulo of Solvay, N.Y., and Jasmin Picariello of Pittsford, N.Y., are recipients of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. The scholarship involves a very competitive selection process that requires students to have an outstanding academic record and they must submit a proposal for a project relating to their international program, which is to be completed upon their return from studying abroad.
Beck (no photo available) and Bukowiec are international studies majors studying abroad at Al-Akhawayn University, Morocco, through the University of Montana. Beck and Bukowiec are both former Marines and infantrymen in Afghanistan.
Fasulo is studying Italian and Spanish languages and literature and will be studying at the Universita degli Studi D’Annunzio in Pescara, Italy, through Nazareth’s Residential Program.
Finally, Picariello is studying international business and Chinese languages and literature and will be attending Shandong Normal University in Jinan, China, through Nazareth’s Exchange Program.
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program allows U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to apply for grants to help further their academic studies abroad. Students are encouraged to pursue non-traditional study abroad destinations, including those outside Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The program prepares students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world. Congressionally funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, the Gilman International Scholarship seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
