FIU’s School of Architecture wants to congratulate the three architecture students that have recently been awarded scholarships to study abroad for a semester in Genoa, Italy this upcoming fall, 2013.
Christopher Centeno won a $5,000 Gilman scholarship. He was just one of just three FIU students to win this prestigious national honor.
Haley Perry won $3,000 from the Miami-Dade County Resident Villager Scholarship and Thias Mathias won $3,000 from the Judith Seymour Memorial Villager Scholarship. Haley and Thias competed for these architectural historic preservation awards against students from the University of Miami and Miami Dade College.
Through these scholarships, the students have received support for their semester abroad in Genoa, Italy. The program is ideally situated in the historic center of the city in a newly renovated former convent dating from the 13th century. During the semester, students in Genoa are afforded the opportunity to study those artistic, architectural, landscape and interior spaces and artifacts that have long been acknowledged for their exceptional and enduring value to Western design culture.
We encourage all students to participate in this program. A semester abroad is a significant and exciting opportunity for students in the Architecture department. For more information on FIU’s Study Abroad Genoa, click here.
Once again, congratulations! We wish you a great study abroad experience, as well as the opportunity to create many wonderful and lasting memories.
