Melissa Neumaier, from Reedsburg, a senior game design and development student – art major, received a grant from the Flemish government for priority countries. The nearly $ 5,800 scholarship will allow Neumaier to attend Howest University in Belgium this fall.
The objective of the scholarship is to promote the exchange of students between Belgium and Brazil, Chile, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, South Africa, Turkey and the United States . The scholarship is very competitive with only eight applications per country allowed.
For the first time, two UW-Stout students received an international Benjamin A. Gilman scholarship, named after the late congressman
Hannah Waldner, of Madison, in second year majoring in arts education, and Yohana Ohlrogge, of Middleton, junior in rehabilitation services, each received a scholarship of $ 4,500 to study abroad in the spring of 2022. The scholarship is a program of the US Department of the State Office of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the Institute of International Education.
Waldner will study at the Accademia Italiana in Florence, Italy. “My main focus for going there is art classes,” said Waldner.
