EWU McNair Scholars are traveling the world with Gilman
Congratulations to Wendolyn Martinez and Malichi Chukwu, two EWU McNair Scholars and Political Science majors, for receiving the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Our Eagles were selected among the nearly 3000 Gilman core awards from 356 U.S. Institutions for this fall 2018-Summer 2019 study abroad. These two EWU McNair scholars worked closely with the EWU School of Global Learning’s staff to complete the application package. The School of Global Learning is committed to extending student learning beyond the classroom by developing education abroad opportunities that are simultaneously intellectually engaging and financially accessible for students.
Mr. Chukwu will utilize this scholarship to visit Thailand this August 20th. Ms. Martinez will travel to Russia this fall 2019.
