Eneris is a recipient of the Gilman Scholarship which provides financial support to U.S. students who might not otherwise be able to afford studying abroad. Eneris is bilingual and as a creative writer will be learning another new language that will provide her a tremendous opportunity to grow. Eneris will be attending Yeungnam University located in the small city of Gyeongsan, South Korea. While there she will write in Hangul (Korean alphabet) challenging herself to study an alphabet and new writing system. Eneris will also serve as an English mentor in the Language Partner Program. The Gilman Scholarship Program gave approximately 1,000 awards after reviewing over 3,000 applications nationwide.
Amy Dinh, a senior Goodrich scholar, received a national community scholarship from the International Student Exchange Program. The scholarship will assist her as she travels to Korea where she will study at the University of Seoul. While studying abroad, she will be part of a program called SeoulMate that is designed to enhance participants’ understanding of the Korean language. Upon returning to Omaha, Amy plans to give back to the community as a translator. Amy is a first-generation student. Her parents immigrated to the United States from Vietnam.
Studying abroad will continue to enable students to engage actively with the global community, and by so doing, advance one of the fundamental goals of CPACS and the University of Nebraska at Omaha as they prepare students for global citizenship and leadership.
