Three Wabash College students have earned Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships to study abroad during the Fall 2016 semester. The awards will take this trio to Central America and Europe.
Immanuel Mitchell-Sodipe ’18, a philosophy major who will study in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua; Dominick Rivers ’19, an art major who will study in Prague, Czech Republic; and Rodolfo Solis ’18, a political science and Spanish double major who will study in Valencia, Spain, each received the Gilman Scholarship, an award up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program costs. A fourth Wabash student, Jason VanMeter ’18, also was awarded a Gilman Scholarship this year, but declined in order to pursue other opportunities.
“I am certainly proud of the Wabash students who earned these highly competitive awards from the Gilman International Scholarship Program,” said Dr. Scott E. Feller, Dean of the College. “Their success reflects both their own achievements as young scholars and the quality of our Wabash College study abroad program.”
