Finalists Announced for Spring 2016 ISV Magazine Margaret W. Wong Scholarship

ISV Magazine is proud to announce the 11 finalists for the Margaret W. Wong Scholarship!

“It never gets any easier,” Carrie Circosta, Editor in Chief of International Student Voice Magazine expressed when asked how hard it is to select the finalists for the Margaret W. Wong Scholarship. “There are so  many international students who have done so much and have such amazing goals, we needed the extra time to go through all the applications and had to make some tough decisions. We expected to have five to 10 finalists, but it was too hard to  narrow it down so we bumped the number of finalists up to 11.”

The ISV Magazine Margaret W. Wong Scholarship is awarded once in the fall and once in the spring and is worth $500.

The finalists listed are still in the running to win the $500. From these 11 students, just one will be selected to receive the scholarship. The winner will be announced on Monday, February 1.
