Creighton students receive mentoring, scholarships for competitive international fellowships and scholarships

OMAHA, Neb. (Feb. 24, 2016) — Creighton University’s Presidential Mentoring Scholarship Committee announced its annual scholarship recipients earlier this month.

This year, the committee selected four students in the College of Arts and Sciences to receive $1,750 each in recognition of their potential to be competitive candidates for external scholarships and fellowships, including those from the Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes and Fulbright programs, as well as internal awards such as Creighton’s Ferlic Undergraduate Scholarship.

The 2016 scholarship recipients are:

• Shannon Fuller, English

• Elizabeth Kosanke, Exercise Science

• Sruti Prathivadhi, Applied Physical Analysis and Medical Mathematics

• Carolyn Taylor, Applied Physical Analysis

The Rev. John Schlegel, S.J., former Creighton University president, initiated the Presidential Mentoring Scholarship program nine years ago to encourage students to pursue international scholarships and fellowships.

Fuller plans to apply for a Mitchell Scholarship, along with pursuing a Marshall Scholarship and a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship. Kosanke plans to apply for a Boren Scholarship. Prathivadhi has won one Ferlic undergraduate scholarship and intends to apply for another. Taylor intends to apply both for a Boren Scholarship and for a National Science Foundation Fellowship.
