King's announces Fall 2013 Study Abroad Excellence Awards Winners
Posted on 25/11/2013
Christopher Gonzales and Fenchi Sun have been named the recipients of the Fall 2013 Study Abroad Excellence Awards. Each student received £2,500 to be used toward study abroad fees.
Gonzales is an American History student at Brown University. He wished to study abroad at King’s in order to pursue classes in the War Studies Department. Gonzales previously studied abroad in Nanjing, China.
Sun is currently a student at Boston College. She applied to King’s College London specifically to enroll in the course The Evolution of Modern Business. In the course students learn how modern corporations came to be the way they are by examining the effect of key political, economic, legal and social factors from the late 19th century forward. A major reason for Sun’s decision to study abroad is her goal to understand the driving factors that shape modern business. She previously studied abroad in France, Germany and Switzerland.
King’s Study Abroad Excellence Awards are presented each semester to our most distinguished Study Abroad students in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Awards are made to candidates of outstanding quality who demonstrate in their application how their time at King’s builds on their academic record, and how it will help fulfill their personal and academic ambitions.
