Athena Study Abroad is proud to announce the winners of the summer 2013 scholarships! After receiving many impressive applications, we are happy to reveal the most deserving winners and their respective scholarships.
Short Term Service Scholarship: $400.
Katie Yeaton, Endicott College
A junior Elementary Education major, Katie Yeaton is gearing up for a summer session in London, England. As the president of her graduating class, Katie has set the example of what it means to give back to your community.
Katie understands that lending a helping hand and dedicating time can often be just as, if not more, effective than donating money. She’s proven her dedication through her continued efforts at Inn Between, a local family shelter in her community. Organizing the Children’s Garden and the ‘Back -2- School’ drive, we are happy to make a difference in Katie’s exploration of London because she has worked hard to make a difference in the lives of many families in her community. Congratulations, Katie!
Athena Penny Scholarship: $250
Anna Baroni, Oklahoma State University
Entering her final year as a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, Anna is on her way to Rome, Italy this summer. We’re thrilled to help her experience this city she is deeply connected with by awarding her the Athena Penny Scholarship.
There are many reasons anyone would want to study in Rome, but for Anna the reasons hit closer to home as she herself is a descendant of Italy and has family in the city. She also is looking forward to learning more about the roots of her Catholic faith in the epicenter of the religion while continuing her studies of Communication Sciences and Disorders. We’re happy to help Anna find her roots in the bustling city of Rome, Italy. Congratulations, Anna!
Thank you to all who submitted applications and congratulations again to both of our recipients! We’re thrilled to see students pursuing their passions and are excited for the adventures ahead. Have a wonderful summer, ladies!
