Daniel Spratt, a junior Asian Studies major from Butler, has been selected for a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship from the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and the Institute of International Education.

Mr. Spratt, who will study in China during the 2009–2010 academic year, is the ninth IUP student to be selected for this prestigious scholarship since 2006. This year, scholarships were limited to only 850 recipients throughout the nation.

I know that you join me in offering Mr. Spratt our most sincere congratulations on this honor and our best wishes for a successful time of study.
