The Center for the Humanities has announced that the UNH Ghana Study Abroad Program has awarded two $3000 scholarships. Courtney Perron and Zoey Rausch have each received an award to assist them with the expense of studying at the University of Ghana for the spring 2012 semester. Ms. Perron is a junior Social Work major with a minor in French, and Ms. Rausch is a double major in Greek and Theater and Dance.
The Ghana Scholarship is funded by a gift from a generous donor, with the funds matched by the Office of the Provost. Designed to assist students who have financial need and who plan to use their Ghana experience to contribute to UNH as a diverse learning environment, the award is based on an essay competition.
The Ghana Program itself was created by the Center for the Humanities with support from the U.S Department of State. Eight undergraduate students will participate in the coming semester. For more information, see www.unh.edu/ghana.
