Dr. Hugh McGuigan Scholarship 2020-2021

As a result of an initiative by Kunle Oguneye (‘97) and other international alumni, a scholarship fund was started in January 2018 in honor of Dr. Hugh McGuigan, retired Director of International Studies (1983-2008). A one-time $1000 scholarship was awarded to two international students in spring 2020. Up to two new recipients will be selected again this year.
