Two CWRU students win national scholarships to study abroad

Making their way through the highly competitive selection process, two Case Western Reserve University students were chosen as Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship recipients, receiving $2,500 each for spring semester 2017 study abroad.

Precious Adeleye will study economics and mathematics at the National University of Singapore. Driven by her interest in cultural perspective, having immigrated to the United States at the age of 10 from Nigeria, Adeleye wants to tie Singapore’s multicultural presence into her understanding of urban development.

Zeesha Braslawsce will study mechanical engineering at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. A track and field athlete and active member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, Braslawsce hopes to show his CWRU peers that study abroad is accessible to everyone.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program seeks to provide financial support to students who have been traditionally under-represented in education abroad. It encourages students to choose unique destinations and fields of study to further their education and growth as global citizens.
