Global connection: Four international students receive scholarships from local rotary clubs

By Communications and Marketing

Four Kansas State University graduate students have been awarded $500 International Graduate Student scholarships from the Konza and Manhattan Rotary clubs.

The annual scholarship is awarded to graduate students based on academic achievement, financial need and the benefit of graduate training to their home country.

The 2012 scholarship recipients are: Dehui Hu, doctoral candidate in physics, China; Nicole John, doctoral candidate in sociology, Grenada; Gayathri Pidatala Kandiraju, doctoral candidate in human ecology with a specialization in apparel and textiles, India; and Mohammed Gharaibeh, doctoral candidate in statistics, Jordan.

Rotary is a global organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service and fosters peace and goodwill. The International Graduate Student Scholarship is one way that local clubs build friendships, goodwill and international understanding.
