Three students have won scholarships

Three DePauw students have won U.S. State Department-sponsored scholarships that will enable them to study abroad over the next several months.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, established in 2001, enables students with high financial need to study abroad.

All three students credit Neal McKinney ’09, associate director of DePauw’s off-campus programs, with encouraging them to pursue the scholarships and helping them through the extensive application process.

“It’s like this whole mapping out of their lives. Jenny will tell you the way that I go about it, some students think of it as therapy.”

502 Bad Gateway

Alhakeem was born in the United States but moved with his family to his parents’ native Syria when he was a baby. They lived there until late 2012, when they moved to Houston to escape violence in the escalating civil war.

The destruction of Syrian antiquities caused him to recognize “not much attention was given to the intangible history. What I really want to do in the future, hopefully, is do research on ancient near Eastern music.”
