Yesterday afternoon was a perfect day for the benefactors and recipients of the Kenneth Rhys Rudolph Memorial Fund for European Summer Study Abroad to meet each other in person. This year, three students benefited from the fund, which allows students who are unable to study abroad during the academic year to enroll in an off campus summer study program.
The Rudolph Fund was established by friends and family members to honor the memory of Kenneth Rudolph, a 2005 cum laude graduate of Wabash College, who died in a tragic automobile accident at the age of 23. He so appreciated his own study abroad experience in Stirling, Scotland at the University that his family established a tribute to Kenneth so that other students may have the same opportunity. The first Rudolph summer scholarship was awarded in 2007.
This past summer, the three Rudolph scholars were: Adam Barnes ’14, Spanish major, Valencia, Spain; Nate Chapman ’14, English major, Sussex, England; and David Myles ’14, English major, London School of Economics.
