UMD Student Receives Katherine E. Sullivan Scholarship
to Study Abroad

University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) School of Fine Arts student, Joseph Sand has been awarded a Katherine E. Sullivan Scholarship for the 2005-06 academic year to study in the Art and Design program at the University of Wolverhampton in the United Kingdom. He is a UMD senior from Austin, MN.

The Katherine E. Sullivan Scholarship provides an opportunity for University of Minnesota seniors to enrich their academic experience with a fifth year of undergraduate study in another country. The Office of International Programs grants these awards, and the Honors Division of the College of Liberal Arts, Twin Cities Campus, is responsible for the selection of recipients.

The scholarship is intended to support credit-bearing and usually classroom-based study abroad that immerses the student in the host university, research institute, or other institution, as well as in the host culture. Typical scholarship recipients will study in their chosen foreign country for an entire academic year and earn 30 semester credits.

Recipients are selected on the basis of academic record and promise; relevance of the proposed study to academic and career plans; sufficiency of academic preparation as well as degree of proficiency in the language of the proposed country of study; strength of the personal statement and the faculty recommendations; past involvement in relevant extracurricular, volunteer, and work activities; and evidence of maturity, emotional stability, adaptability, and respect for other cultures.
