Two graduates awarded Rotary Scholarships

Two recent Emory College graduates, Alex Gillies ('00) and Camillia Lui ('00), were recently awarded Rotary Scholarships. Gillies, who majored in international studies at Emory, hopes to pursue a master's degree in international affairs at the University of Ghana. An anthroplogy/human biology major, Lui plans to use her Chinese minor when she travels to Taiwan in Fall 2001.

The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries. Today, the program sponsors several types of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies. While abroad, scholars serve as ambassadors of goodwill to the people of the host country and give
presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. Upon returning home, scholars share with local Rotarians and others the experiences that led to greater understanding of their host countries.

More than 1,200 scholarships were awarded for study in 2000-01. Through grants totaling approximately $26 million, recipients from some 69 countries will study in more than 64 different nations.
