Amber Koonce and Cody Poplin have been awarded the 2012-2013 scholarships from the Henry Luce Foundation in New York City to study abroad in Asia.

The scholarship funds a year of living and learning in East and Southeast Asia for recent college graduates.

The goal of the foundation is to connect future American leaders with Asian colleagues who work in their fields.

Only 18 scholars were chosen this year out of 143 candidates from across 62 colleges and universities nationwide.

Koonce and Poplin will learn their assignments in June and will spend part of the summer in language study. They will start their 10-month internships in September. Both students have been previously recognized by several other organizations and foundations for their contributions to UNC and the world.
