This year’s scholarship was awarded to Samantha Tuschman.
Samantha is a junior at the University of Minnesota where she is a double-major in Italian Studies and Global Studies, with a concentration in political economy and environmental change.
She will attend the University of Bologna where she will focus on Italian history while interacting with native Italian students. She is keenly interested in topics such as immigration and climate change and how they affect Italy and Europe in general.
We congratulate Samantha and look forward to reading about her learning adventures in Italy!
