Congratulations to Cynthia Ubah for receiving the Fund for Education Abroad Scholarship! This scholarship allows students who come from a variety of racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds to study abroad for a minimum of four weeks to a full academic year.
Cynthia is currently a junior studying Dietetics with a certificate in Global Health. She will be studying abroad this summer on the UW Microbiology and Public Health in Northern Thailand program. She chose this program because it will allow her to “fulfill a requirement in both her major and certificate” and because “summer is the best time for her to study abroad.” While she is there, her goals are to learn how to speak Thai and grow personally and mentally as a person.
