Zoe Vorndran wins scholarship to study in Ireland

Zoe Vorndran, a junior at Manchester University, has received a BCA Study Abroad scholarship to attend Maynooth University near Dublin, Ireland.

The Fort Wayne resident will live and study alongside Irish students this spring semester. She is majoring in history and English.

BCA Study Abroad was founded as Brethren Colleges Abroad in 1962 as a secular, nonprofit provider of academic, language and cultural immersion studies for undergraduates. The acronym now stands for Bridge the world, Connect for peace, Act for justice.

BCA Study Abroad was established as a consortium of seven colleges affiliated with the Church of the Brethren, including Manchester University.

Faithful to its values of peace and social justice, BCA Study Abroad facilitates opportunities for growth in intercultural understanding and global awareness through educational programs that foster scholarship, community engagement and guided, reflective learning.

The S1,000 scholarship will help defray Vorndran’s costs for the semester abroad.

She is active in Simply Brethren, the Asian Awareness Association and Rotaract at MU.
