Pitzer College Student Awarded a Kemper Scholarship

Claremont, Calif. (April 28, 2010) — Pitzer College congratulates Kari Todd '12, recipient of a 2010 Kemper Scholarship.

Todd, who double majors in international relations and business, plans to study abroad with Pitzer in Nepal next spring. She will attend the Kemper Foundation's annual conference this fall to discuss summer projects and meet other scholars.

"Kemper scholars gain valuable experiences and establish irreplaceable contacts as a result of their internships. These experiences are varied and unique. I see them return from their summers with confidence in their ability to apply their multiple talents to changing the world," said Kate Rogers, professor of organizational studies at Pitzer College.

The Kemper Scholar Program prepares students for leadership and service, especially in the fields of administration and business. The program aims to promote education in the liberal arts while providing students opportunities for career exploration and practical experience. Only students from fifteen colleges nationally are eligible to become Kemper Scholars.
