March 29, 2019 7 AM

Kaitlyn Walsh, a sophomore Counseling and Human Services student, has been chosen as the most recent recipient of the Judith Waranch Scholarship for International Study. In summer 2019, Kaitlyn will participate in the SU in Italy program to Florence for eight weeks. While abroad, she will take art and history courses towards fulfilling SEE general education requirements.

In her application, Kaitlyn wrote, “I wish to take an art history course as well as a course about Jewish and Christian responses when it comes to the Holocaust. These courses seem extremely interesting and will impact my academic career being that I am taking non-traditional courses. I would also be able to see different parts of the world and truly experience diversity when it comes to unique cultures. Travel is a valuable part of life and experiencing a whole different lifestyle benefits an individual greatly.”

The Judith Waranch Scholarship for International Study was established in 2016 by Ms.Waranch to encourage Stevenson students to participate in a study abroad program. The Scholarship is open to female students with financial need. Ms. Waranch, a member of the Stevenson University Board of Trustees, has more than 35 years of experience as a senior executive and business lawyer. She has traveled extensively and understands the value of experiencing different cultures. It is Ms. Waranch’s desire to encourage young women to expand their experiences and to develop a world perspective. She values classroom instruction combined with experiential education as a foundation to allow individuals to lead full, productive and successful lives, which is at the core of Stevenson’s mission.
