BENEDICT & DONNA ZOBRIST SCHOLARSHIP

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

The 2013 Benedict & Donna Zobrist Scholarship is designed to provide opportunities for undergraduate study in both Europe and Asia. This $2,500 award is based on academic merit and quality of submitted application materials. To honor President Truman and perpetuate his support of international student exchange, the Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award Foundation sponsors scholarships to underwrite the exchange of students between the United States and other countries, particularly Europe and Asia, for educational purposes. The Zobrist family has generously agreed to award $2,500 scholarships for outstanding Northwestern students to honor the memories of Benedict and Donna Zobrist.
