EAU CLAIRE -- The 1997 $500 Eau Claire Rotary Club Scholarship for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has been awarded to senior Jasmyne Ngo, a biology major from Eau Claire.
Ngo was selected from a pool of seven applicants, said Dr. Nadine St. Louis, professor of English and member of a committee of the Eau Claire Noon Rotary Club.
Each applicant is required to write an essay related to international perspectives. The essays are scored for pertinence to the question and quality of writing. Ngo, a 1994 Regis High School graduate, was selected on the basis of her academic achievement and the quality of her essay, St. Louis said.
All applicants must have graduated from an Eau Claire area high school, have a minimum GPA of 3.0, demonstrate financial need, be a continuing full time junior or senior, be involved with international education by either having completed a study abroad experience or being accepted into a study abroad experience, have two faculty recommendations, and be involved in service on the campus or in the community. Money for the scholarship is raised primarily through the annual Rotary Club rose and poinsettia sale, St. Louis said.
Ngo has tutored students in chemistry and biology in the Academic Skills Center and has worked grading papers in the chemistry department. She plans to attend medical school and will study abroad in Winchester, England in the fall.
