Matteo Vanella, UPP Student, and Oluwadara Mamora, PA Student, Recipients of the Laurette Kirstein Scholarship

Congratulations to Matteo Vanella, Urban Planning and Policy student, and Oluwadara Mamora, Public Administration student, recipients of the Laurette Kirstein Scholarship at UIC. Each of the six winners was chosen by a panel of judges from an extremely competitive applicant pool to receive a $5,000 (pre-tax) award in the form of a student account credit for tuition, books and living expenses. The group represents five different countries and academic disciplines from across the University. While diverse in background, each winner has demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence and a desire to use their education for positive social change.
