UofL junior Maegan Helm has been awarded a 2019 Etscorn International Research Award. UofL awards the Irvin F. and Alice S. Etscorn International Summer Research Award to promising undergraduates interested in conducting international research over the summer.

Helm use the scholarship for an intensive language-based study in Barranquilla, Colombia.


Receiving this award will propel my future into action. But even more importantly, the Award provides a foundation of confidence and reassurance as a student. Personally, it is a sign of support from the Honors Program and UofL to follow my true path, traditional or individualized.
