Nicholas Boldt receives two scholarships to study abroad in Japan

ghCongratulations to BME rising junior Nicholas Boldt who was recently awarded two scholarships to study abroad in Osaka, Japan this summer throughCET. The Intensive Japanese Language Program will include language classes, living with a local roommate and attending various cultural activities. Nicholas received both a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for $5,000 and a Freeman Asia Grant for $3,000.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world. This program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State and is administered by the Institute of International Education.

Freeman-ASIA (Freeman Awards for Study in Asia) is designed to support U.S.-based undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia. The program’s goal is to increase the number of U.S. citizens and permanent residents with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures.
