Emily and Nina

CAS is delighted to announce that two UIUC undergraduate students, Emily Brooks, and Nina Stepaniants, have been awarded tuition scholarships for 2023-24. These scholarships are possible through the generous support of UIUC alumnus Ambassador Erik Whitaker, and this will be the third year of the program.

Emily and Nina will be third-year students in 2023-24; Emily is in Agricultural and Consumer Economics, and Nina is a Global Studies major. Both are looking forward to further classes in African studies and to pursuing careers broadly related to public service.
