Newman Family Scholarship for International Studies
The Newman Family Scholarship for International Studies has been established to benefit women International Studies majors who strive to promote understanding of different cultures in the service of the greater good.
Lynne Newman is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin (BA ’67). Her Spanish major prepared her for a full life that has included travel all over the world. Exposure to a variety of cultures has increased her awareness of the need to promote understanding of different cultures. She believes that this understanding can lead to solving some of our global challenges including reducing armed conflict and promoting literacy and family planning for women. She and her husband Jim established the Newman Family Scholarship to benefit a woman student majoring in International Studies within the College of Letters & Science.
The application will open 12/1/2016 and close 1/15/2017.
