International Student Scholarships Established

Two new scholarships have been established by recent international Truman graduates through the Truman State University Foundation.

Prajwal Sharma, a May 2006 graduate, recently established The Mark Nordstrom Memorial Scholarship. An assistant professor of communication, Nordstrom was the adviser for detours magazine and the Echo yearbook. He was known for his enthusiasm, work ethic and wonderful sense of humor. Nordstrom passed away May 13, 2006, and Sharma, former editor in chief of detours, established this scholarship in his memory. A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded for the next four years to students based on the quality of their scholarship application and their contribution to breaking the international stereotype at the University.
