Elizabeth Mangner Neil supported her grandson, Craig J. Gehring, in his six-month overseas study experience to Yugoslavia when he attended MSU. The experience was a life-changing event for him, giving him an understanding and appreciation of other cultures.
Gehring established the Elizabeth Mangner Neil Overseas Study Scholarship for journalism undergraduate majors with at least junior standing in honor of his grandmother. Financial need may be considered.
- Applicants will submit a statement indicating why they feel overseas study is of value to them and how this experience will help prepare them for their intended career
- Priority will be given to those with no overseas experience and to those enrolled in overseas study courses offered by the School of Journalism
