MANHATTAN -- The Manhattan and Konza Rotary clubs are recognizing six international graduate students from Kansas State University with $500 International Graduate Student scholarships.

"The international scholarship program is one way for Rotary to promote peace and goodwill throughout the world and it furthers our motto of service above self," said Rebecca Gould, co-chair of the scholarship committee for the Konza and Manhattan Rotary clubs and director of K-State's Information Technology Assistance Center.

Scholarship recipients include:

Jianxiu Yao, doctoral student in entomology, China; Lorena Gomez-Montano, master's student in plant pathology, Columbia; Raghavendra Amachawadi, doctoral student in pathobiology, India; Amit Bajracharya, master's student in architecture, Nepal; Jung Hoon Lee, doctoral student in institutional management, South Korea; and Moses Khamis, doctoral student in grain science and industry, Uganda.

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and strive for goodwill and peace in the world.
