Abigail Zurita-Calvario, an Honors College senior majoring in political science and Spanish and minoring in French, was recently awarded a U.S. State Department Benjamin A. Gilman scholarship for study abroad. This award aims to diversify the group of students who study abroad and their destinations.

Abigail was scheduled to study in Paris, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will have the option defer or switch locations through the end of 2021, or arrange a virtual study abroad experience.
