Study abroad scholarships available and information sessions set throughout October

Jake Mitchell’s photo of four Italy sites reflected in sunglasses, not only won a Bosque Gallery exhibition’s Best in Show, but helped raise more than $1,200 for  study abroad scholarships at Lone Star College-CyFair.

Mitchell’s winning photo titled “What We Saw” included sites of Italy including the coastal city of Almalfi, the Coliseum, St. Peter’s Square and the Pantheon. Kelli Sue’s photo took first, Jennifer Giese’s took second, Alex Barocio’s took third and Cody Brautigam received an Honorable Mention.

The recent “Confluence: Study Abroad 2009” photo/art exhibition featured photos and art pieces representing students’ summer study abroad experiences, journeys and explorations around Italy and China. All gallery submissions were auctioned with proceeds supporting the LSC-CyFair Study Abroad Scholarship fund.

Information sessions on 2010 LSC-CyFair Study Abroad programs will be held Oct. 5, Oct. 15 and Oct. 21 on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress as well as Oct. 13 at LSC-Fairbanks Center located at 14955 Northwest Freeway.

LSC-CyFair Financial Aid representatives will be present at each session to assist with FAFSA questions. In addition, Professors Buck Buchanan and Rob Coyle will be on hand to provide information on LSC Study Abroad programs and opportunities.
