Jane Kinney Memorial Scholarship Recipient selected for prestigious international postgraduate award program

Senior Alpha Phi Foundation Scholar and Jane Kinney Memorial Scholarship Recipient Isabella Lichen (Iota Kappa-Dartmouth) is one of 151 students to be named a 2022 Schwarzman Scholar. Established in 2016 by Blackstone chairman and CEO Stephen A. Schwarzman, the highly competitive program is the first scholarship created to respond to the geopolitical landscape of the 21st century.” As a Schwarzman Scholar, Isabella will pursue her Master’s in Global Affairs at Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University in Beijing, with a primary focus on enhancing her “leadership abilities and study[ing] global medicine such that I can work to minimize health inequities.”
