Three earn Gilman scholarships

August 14, 2014

Three Cornell College students, Yesenia Hernandez, Jeannene Clark, and Hana Martin have earned Gilman Scholarships that will allow them to spend a semester studying off campus.

Hernandez will spend the fall taking part in the School for International Training’s International Honors Program in Human Rights. She will travel to New York, Chile, Jordan, and Nepal to study comparative human rights issues.

“I’m grateful and excited to be a recipient of this scholarship and I can’t wait until the Fall,” Hernandez said.

Clark will go to Amman, Jordan, with the Associated Colleges of the Midwest Arabic Language studies program. She’ll spend the fall learning Arabic while immersed in Jordanian culture.

“I am amazed, humbled, and relieved to have the additional funds for my study abroad program,” Clark said.

Martin will spend the fall in Granda, Spain through Central College Abroad.

Another Cornell student, Erinn Voas, spent her junior year in Amman, Jordan, thanks in large part to a Boren Scholarship.
