April 4, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan University seniors Kari Grace, a sociology and Hispanic studies double major from Winnetka, Ill., and Kristen Hosack, a history and Hispanic studies double major from Bloomington, Ill., were recently awarded the 2011 Sigma Delta Pi Undergraduate Summer Scholarship.

Sigma Delta Pi, a national collegiate Hispanic honor society, recognizes students with outstanding academic achievement in the field of Hispanic studies. The scholarship, given annually, covers the cost for students to study abroad in Ecuador, Mexico or Spain during the summer. 

Grace will study at the Estudio Internacional Sampere in Madrid or Salamanca, Spain. Hosack has decided to travel to Alcal de Henares, Spain to study at the Instituto Franklin-Universidad de Alcal de Henares in July of 2011. 

The Upsilon Rho chapter of Sigma Delta Pi was established at Illinois Wesleyan in 2000. In addition to the annual scholarship, the organization promotes a love of Hispanic culture and provides members with opportunities for community service.
