THE JAMES J. DAVIS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP 2011 FINALISTS
Congratulations to Courtney Wittekind of Carnegie Mellon University, our 2011 Scholarship Winner!
Courtney designed her own study abroad experience completely on her own, coordinating with a Thai university that has never hosted an international student before, hiring a private Burmese language tutor (although she speaks some Burmese already) and arranging a home stay in Thailand. Courtney will be studying, documenting and assisting Burmese refugees living in Thailand.
Courtney has created a blog documenting all of her work. Check it out here.
