One student from West Texas A&M University won the scholarship from a prestigious university in South Korea, as announced by the officials of the A&M university.
Jacqueline Nevarez, senior business major from Amarillo, is provided the scholarship by the US Department of State. The officials mentioned in the release that Jacqueline will be flying to Seoul on 20th February to perceive international business classes at Yonsei University for the next four months.
Jacqueline said overwhelmingly “I wanted to study in South Korea because it has grown from a poor country to one of the most highly developed economies in the world in just 60 years.” She added further “I want to learn from them and bring ideas back to the U.S. that I can integrate into whatever company I work for after graduating.”
Jacqueline bagged a $4000 Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship in December 2022 which assists students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, supporting them with the skills critical to economic prosperity and national security. The officials mentioned that the program encourages students in studying abroad.
Carolina Galloway, the director of West Texas’ Study Abroad Program said, “Since Jacqueline’s first visit to our office, it was clear that she was going to do everything in her power to make her dream of studying abroad a reality, despite the challenges or barriers, and we are confident she will be successful in her program.”
Carolina said, “Our goal is for students to become aware of the different scholarships that exist, which can help offset the financial requirements, these scholarships are designed to remove barriers and provide students with the opportunity to study abroad, regardless of their circumstances.”
