For Immediate Release

Chris Borton Memorial Scholarship to be offered to UC Davis students for 2019-20
 
The Chris Borton Memorial Scholarship Fund is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity to be made available to candidates from UC Davis wishing to pursue a full year abroad for 2019-20.
 
The generosity of the many contributors to the Fund over the years has put us in a position to be able to increase the number of scholarships we give each year. In order to enlarge the pool of qualified candidates we will try to replicate the success of the UC San Diego program at UC Davis. 
 
The scholarship is merit-based and applications will be considered based on the strength of the statement of purpose, reasons given why the candidate wishes to study abroad, and quality of academic record. The Borton scholarship seeks to reward motivated and dedicated student applicants who see the value of broader cultural and personal development that can be gained from a study abroad experience.
 
The Board of Directors would like to thank Zachary Frieders and Ann Solomon of the International Center at UC Davis for their assistance in making this exciting new opportunity available to UC Davis students.
