Three Students Receive Fellowships for Summer Global Experiences
June 11, 2012
Three Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology students are expanding
their engineering, science and mathematics horizons this summer
through exciting global experiences in the United Kingdom, China
and Spain -- thanks to fellowships from the Office of Global
||Spending Summer in Spain: Angelica Cox, a sophomore math
and economics major from Indianapolis, is looking for a
"life-changing experience" this summer at the University of
Santiago de Compostela.
Angelica Cox, a sophomore math and economics major, is studying
at the University of Santiago de Compostela, one of Spain's leading
colleges. "I want to emerge myself in a place of education much
more different from my norms . . . and to see a different culture.
I also want to have a life-changing experience," she said.
Mary Jones, a senior biomedical engineering major, is studying
at the University of Cambridge, the seventh oldest educational
institution in the world. She is focusing on expanding her interest
in examining the origins of modern scientific thinking, while also
sharpening her skills of interacting with and understanding people
of various backgrounds. Seeing a Royal Shakespeare Company
performance of "The Tempest" is among several cultural activities
Jones has planned throughout the summer.
Jordan Chipka, a senior mechanical engineering major, is serving
as a guest assistant instructor of English at the BFB English
Training School in China's Jiangsu province. He is helping students
improve their English skills in speaking, listening, reading and
writing. He will also share American culture with his students.
Chipka's aspirations are to obtain a doctoral degree and work as a
researcher for a global aerospace company.
The fellowships provide $1,000 to support each student's summer
global experiences. Students were chosen by a committee which
reviewed applications and supporting letters from faculty
