Six UNC students have been awarded Class of 1938 travel fellowships for study abroad programs this summer.
Thirty-seven students applied, submitting project proposals and financial need information. Winners will receive $5,000 each.
The five winners of the 2012 Class of 1938 Summer Study Abroad Fellowships are Elizabeth Atwell, Margo Balboni, Lauren Donoghue, Piya Kerdlap and Erica O’Brien.
Helene Kirschke-Schwartz received the Charles H. and Margaret M. Witten Travel Award.
