2018 Griswold Award Winners:
The 2018 Griswold Scholarship recipients were Michaela Furlong and Eloise Blatherwick, both outstanding students finishing their junior year at CSU.
Michaela is majoring in Spanish and Languages, Literatures, and Cultures and minoring in International Development. She has studied Spanish for eight years, and has most enjoyed the Spanish culture classes she has taken. She is actively involved in CSU’s Global Awareness and International Affairs club (GAIA), which joins international and domestic students in weekly conversation on diverse topics. She studied abroad in India last year, which helped her determine she wants to work in community development outside of the U.S. She will spend this winter in Costa Rica, through CSU’s School of Social Work.
Eloise is majoring in Biological Anthropology with a minor in German. She is an active member of CSU’s German Club for the past two years, and has been an officer for the past year. She has participated in many of their events, from film nights, to conversational groups, hosting a booth at World Unity Fair, and other activities. Through German Club, she found out about a German exchange program in Bamberg, which she will be participating in for the 2018-2019 academic year. This summer, she is participating in a paleontology field school through CSU. After graduation, she plans to continue her anthropologic studies.
