Karl Andresen Political Science Scholarship Awarded to Steven Kerbaugh of Onalaska

RELEASED: April 20, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Foundation awarded senior Steven Kerbaugh, Onalaska, the Karl Andresen Political Science Scholarship for the 2005-06 academic year.

The award was established by former students of Dr. Andresen, professor emeritus of political science, to recognize a graduating senior who has demonstrated academic excellence and the promise of future academic achievements. Kerbaugh will receive an award of $5,000.

"I think I was chosen for this scholarship because of my dedication to my studies and the discipline," Kerbaugh said. "My enthusiasm for the discipline was the motivation for my success, and I think that my professors took due note of that sentiment."

Kerbaugh said he will use the scholarship to help pay for expenses at the University of Minnesota Law School where he plans to specialize in international trade law.

Kerbaugh said that he thinks that the political science department is one of the best on campus.

"Its well-informed, intelligent, friendly and inspiring professors have taught me more than I ever expected to learn about national and world politics, but they also taught me so much more," Kerbaugh said.

Thanks to the political science faculty, Kerbaugh said, he has also learned how to analyze, reason and write in an effective and thought-provoking manner. He said they not only teach, but they foster new ways of looking at and approaching the world we live in.

"I consider myself lucky to have learned under such a talented group of scholars," Kerbaugh said.

The award will be presented during the Honors Week celebration and the Pi Sigma Alpha reception at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 27, in the Alumni Room of Davies Center.
