Two WSU students receive State Department scholarships for study abroad

Two WSU students receive State Department scholarships for study abroad

WSU students Zenna Glaser and Claudia B. Jacobo have been awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. A Gilman Scholarship enables American students to gain proficiency in diverse languages and cultures through study abroad so that they may gain skills critical to U.S. national security and economic competitiveness.

Ms. Jacobo, who is from Spokane Valley, is majoring in Japanese and expects to graduate in spring 2024. She will be participating in an exchange program at Nanzan University in Nagoya, Japan, in the fall 2022 and spring 2023 semesters. 

Ms. Glaser, from South Carolina, is majoring in International Business and Marketing and expects to graduate in spring 2023. She will be spending the fall 2022 semester abroad at Kansai Gaidai University, which is between Kyoto and Osaka, Japan.

The State Department considers Japanese to be a critical-need language.
