Austin Eighan ('14) Receives International Parliament Scholarship

Austin has been selected to receive a scholarship from the German Federal Parliament to participate in their five-month long International Parliament Scholarship (IPS) starting in March 2015. The participants selected from around the world gather to pursue their political, historical, economic, social and cultural research alongside practical work with members of the German government and attend lectures at Berlin universities. The IPS will give Austin an opportunity to pursue further his research begun for his Honors thesis on the success of middle-size corporations in Germany and supportive policies of the German government as well as social attitudes. Over 100 young students from around the world are chosen for this special program which, since it was founded in 1986, has become more theoretical and more  international in scope.

Congratulations, Austin -- a scholarship well deserved!
