Rudolph Fund for European Summer Study Abroad celebrates ten years

Since 2007, 24 Wabash students have enjoyed the opportunity to study abroad with a summer program, thanks to the Kenneth Rhys Rudolph Memorial Fund for European Summer Study Abroad Scholarship.  This year, Dr. and Mrs. Rudolph, 2016 recipients, faculty, and staff welcomed back several alumni who had received the Rudolph Scholarship for a reunion at the Caleb Mills House on September 18.  Click here for photos.

The Rudolph Summer Study Abroad Scholarship was established by friends and family members to honor the memory of Kenneth Rudolph ’05, who died in 2006.  Ken so appreciated his own study abroad experience in Stirling, Scotland at the University that his family established a tribute so that students may enjoy the same opportunity.  It is intended to offer the experience to students who are unable or choose not to be away from campus for an entire semester, yet they have experiences in travel and academics in another country.  Students have studied at universities in England, London, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Spain.

The Kenneth Rhys Rudolph Memorial Fund for European Summer Study Abroad is administered through the International Studies Office.  Click here for information about how to apply for the Rudolph Scholarship. or contact International Studies Director Amy Weir at weira@wabash.edu.
