Mr. Cardinal Wins the Rotary

Robert Works, a senior who will graduate this May as an Honors Scholar, has won a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship. Awarded by the Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship is the largest, privately funded international scholarship and provides a flat grant of $25,000 to study abroad for an academic year with an emphasis on humanitarianism.  Works, a double major in Political Science and Spanish, will study international relations at the prestigious Colegio de México in México City as well as conduct research on the Mexican judicial system.

 

Robert’s Rotary is one in a line of scholarships and distinctions he has received during his time at UofL. In February, he was named this year’s “Mr. Cardinal”, an award chosen by UofL faculty and staff for the most co-curricular senior with strong academics, university involvement, and community engagement. Last summer Robert spent five-weeks in China with fellow juniors from the McConnell Scholars Program.  Then, as an English-Speaking Union Scholar, he went to the University of Oxford where he participated in the History, Politics and Society Summer Program at Exeter College. In the summer of 2008, he was a legal counsel intern for the U.S. Senate Minority leader.

 

 Robert provides leadership to numerous campus groups and has been heavily involved with SGA, Greek Life, and Honors Program activities during his years at U of L. He also serves as a volunteer for Louisville’s World Affairs Council. Robert eventually plans to attend law school with a focus on international law. Roberts Works is a native of Independence, Kentucky, and graduate of Simon Kenton High School.
