University of Wisconsin–Madison students preparing to embark on international internships were among those who gathered recently – accompanied by family and friends – to hear words of encouragement and to receive scholarships to help pay their way. These undergraduates were recognized April 18, at the Spring 2013 Study Abroad Scholarship Award Ceremony, sponsored by the Division of International Studies, International Academic Programs (IAP), and International Internship Program (IIP).
