University of Wisconsin–Madison students preparing to embark on a range of international experiences in the coming months received words of encouragement and financial support at the spring 2016 International Division Scholarship Award Ceremony on April 19, at the Gordon Dining and Event Center.
Students, donors, parents, UW faculty and staff were invited to celebrate the generous financial aids given to students planning to travel abroad for academic programs or internships.
The event – hosted by the UW–Madison International Division and organized by International Academic Programs (IAP), the Division’s study abroad unit – brought together students, parents, donors, UW–Madison faculty and staff.
“UW–Madison is committed to cultivating international scholarship and engagement, promoting global awareness, and preparing students for a diverse and interconnected world,” says IAP Director Dan Gold, who served as master of ceremonies.
“These scholarships make an array of international experiences possible for students across a broad spectrum of disciplines,” Gold says. “Their programs include field work, intensive language training, internships and excursions.”
