Three University of Notre Dame students have been awarded Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships to study abroad during the 2018-19 academic year.
Rising juniors Jahlecia Gregory, an AnBryce Scholar, and Stefania Pulido will participate in Notre Dame International’s Puebla program in Puebla, Mexico, this fall. Gregory is a neuroscience and behavior major with a supplemental major in Africana studies. She is from Boynton Beach, Florida. Pulido is a sociology major with supplemental majors in arts and letters pre-health and Latino studies. She is from Schaumburg, Illinois.
Rising junior Armando Sanchez, another AnBryce Scholar, will participate in NDI’s London Program this fall. Sanchez is a political science major with a minor in constitutional studies. He is from Visalia, California.
In applying for the scholarship, the students worked with the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE) and NDI. CUSE promotes the intellectual development of Notre Dame undergraduates through scholarly engagement, research, creative endeavors and the pursuit of fellowships. NDI advances the University’s mission through international education, research and engagement worldwide.
Jeffrey Thibert, the Paul and Maureen Stefanick Director of CUSE, congratulated the students on the achievement and thanked NDI and Elise Rudt, CUSE’s national fellowships program coordinator and Gilman Scholarship adviser, “for the work they put into promoting this opportunity and advising the students as they prepared their application material.”
