Announcing: 2019 Rustgi South Asian Language Awardees

We are so pleased to announce that three highly qualified applicants were awarded the Rustgi South Asian Language Award to study in the American Institute of Indian Studies this coming summer! As it turns out, our remarkable UB students qualify for many prestigious postings and awards and just one student will be funded by our Rustgi Award. Here are their stories:

  • Yue Zhang: accepted the award and will study at AIIS summer 2019. More to come about Yue and her story!
  • Kayleigh Hamernik: was awarded alternative funding to study in India next academic year and we wish her well in her continuing studies.
  • Jonathan Bessette: accepted an alternative opportunity for the summer instead of study abroad and we wish him well.
