Posted Jan. 17 - Haylee Parrish, a junior from Andrews, Ind., recently became the eighth MU student to receive the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad this spring. Haylee, who majors in English and Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL), will study Japanese language and culture at MU’s partner institution, Hokusei Gakuen University in Sapporo, Japan, from April to mid-July.

The highly competitive Gilman scholarship is awarded on the basis of a strong academic record, financial need, and a proposed service project. It is designed to help prepare students for success in the global economy.
