CET Academic programs announces the creation of a special scholarship in memory of Hiliary Echo Douglas. Hiliary was a dedicated study abroad advocate, beloved daughter, wife, mother, and colleague who passed away in 2008. In 1999 Hiliary traveled to Vietnam with a Fulbright Fellowship to investigate modern theatre in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. After two more years working for various international cultural collaborations in Vietnam, Hiliary joined CET Academic Programs as the Vietnam Immersion Resident Director. Sadly, Hiliary’s young life was cut short in July 2008 by a car accident, hence our desire to establish a legacy in her honor.
The Hiliary Echo Douglas scholarship will be given to a student who demonstrates Hiliary’s love for Vietnam and other cultures, her desire to give back to the world community, and her contagious love for life.
Hosted and administered by the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA), the Hiliary Echo Douglas Scholarship will award up to $5000. Details about the scholarship application can be found at http://www.fundforeducationabroad.org/applicants/scholarships/
