Sweet Briar College
Amanda-Cristina "Cris" Gonzalez, a junior at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, has received a Boren Scholarship. Cris is a government major and law and society minor.
Cris started her Boren Scholarship application early, giving her time to submit multiple drafts to the NSEP on-campus committee. The committee challenged her to focus her proposal, articulate her interest in U.S.-Vietnam security, and set clear, accomplishable goals. All of their hard worked paid off. Chris will spend the 2010-2011 academic year studying at Vietnam National University.
Chris was recently profiled in an article by Sweet Briar College. Read the complete article.
