Religious Studies major Robert Lisak has been awarded the SILLC Global Award. This very competitive award will help fund Rob's participation in the Arizona in Hangzhou: Chinese Culture and Buddhism Study Abroad program.

Rob says "My college path has taken me in several different directions and I am taking every opportunity presented to me.  My reason for study is to find commonality in humanity and to be an active agent to bridge the gaps that seem to exist between so many people. My study, and my work, is a passion for me, and I hope to continue to pave the road for a new cross-cultural understanding for anyone I meet."  

 The SILLC Global Award accepts applications at the beginning of every spring semester from students majoring in one or more of the following SILLC disciplines: Africana Studies, Classics, East Asian Studies, French and Francophone Studies, German Studies, Italian Studies, Religious Studies, and Russian and Slavic Studies.
