Summer Travel

Anastasia is among four current students to receive a Vira I. Heinz scholarship.

Summer opens doors to students as they pursue great internships and jobs—or even travel to new places and cultures.

Anastasia White, a junior communication and media major with minors in English and women's and gender studies, is studying in Bangalore, India this summer as a Vira I. Heinz scholar.

"I want to learn the language and really get to know the people," she said. Learn more about it in her Student Spotlight.

Carlow University Magazine reported on the four scholarship recipients, including Anastasia, who will travel internationally to learn about new cultures and expand their horizons.

Three other Carlow undergraduate students are Vira I. Heinz scholars:

  • Yazmin Bennett-Kelly, a sophomore English major with a certification in secondary education and minor in women’s studies: Ghana, Africa. 

  • Brianne Griffith, a junior creative writing major with minors in professional writing and communication: Stellenbosch, South Africa. 

  • Courtney Wallace, a junior psychology major: Sligo, Ireland. 

The Vira I. Heinz (VIH) Program for Women in Global Leadership prepares women for worldwide challenges by offering international experiences, leadership development, and community service. The young women receive a scholarship of at least $5,000 to put toward the cost of an international experience of their choosing.
