Roaming Buffs Scholarship

A new Alumni Association travel scholarship will benefit its debut winners this fall, supporting three Buffs studying overseas. Funded by proceeds from the Roaming Buffs alumni travel program, the scholarship provides $1,500 grants for tuition, books and other academic expenses.

Magdalena Castillo (IntlAf’20) will go to Spain for the Council on International Educational Exchange Seville Liberal Arts program. Luke Collier (MechEngr’19) will attend the CIEE Madrid Engineering & Society program, also in Spain. And Austin Chrisp (PolSci’20) will study at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
