Congratulations to GC Alum Measu Bellay, Class of 2018, and current GC student Owen Brinker, Class of 2020, for their spectacular accomplishments!
Measu Bellay was awarded the U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship where she studied in Thailand! The Gilman Scholarship is a grant program that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to our national security and economic competitiveness.
Shout out to participants in GC's summer Global Service course -BSGC338 for fulfilling their Global Experience! The Global Experience is a hallmark of Global Communities that offeres students the opportunity to engage global issues first-hand through experiential courses, internships, and/or service-learning. In BSGC338, students make meaning of their internationally-focused service experience through academic content and critical reflection in the Dominican Republic.
Emily Quinn and Valeria Pavlov, alumni of Global Communities, reflect on impact of Global Communities and share success stories.
"We of course made a stop at Dorchester where our friendship first began!"
