McDonnell Academy Celebrates Winter Graduates

Graduate Shadows

The McDonnell International Scholars Academy will host its Winter Recognition Ceremony on Wednesday, December 20, 2017.

There will be a wide range of careers paths represented at the ceremony, and some Scholars will have the opportunity to share their experience as a McDonnell Scholar while attending Washington University.

In addition to academic talent, the Academy looks for Scholars who have an interest in broader social and cultural issues. Once they are members of the Academy, they are provided with opportunities to develop leadership skills. McDonnell Academy Scholars are Scholars for Life.
