We would like to extend our warm congratulations to two of our department’s undergraduate students who were awarded the Selmer Birkelo Scholarship for 2009-2010. These students are Chelsey Rosetter (Spanish Studies major) and Elizabeth Troolin (Spanish Studies and Political Science double major). They were two of only fourteen students in CLA to receive this award! !Enhorabuena!

For the 2009-10 academic year Birkelo Scholarship recipients will receive up to $4,000, depending on financial need.

To be considered for Birkelo Scholarship students must intend to pursue a degree from the College of Liberal Arts and may not be enrolled in any other college.
