Jon N. Torgerson Scholarship Fund

The Jon N. Torgerson Scholarship Fund is designed to assist a Humanities major with demonstrated need to participate in a Drake-sponsored international travel seminar. To be eligible, the applicant must be majoring in an area of the Humanities, have at least a 2.0 GPA, and planning to enroll in a Drake-sponsored international study seminar.

The award is applicable only to international study courses. The recipient must agree to attend the Arts & Sciences Honors Convocation, where the scholarship will be awarded. This scholarship is provided by a generous gift from the Jon N. Torgerson family. Applications must sent to Amy O'Shaughnessy by the end of the fall semester.
