Rupert L. Lyn Global Learning Capstone Scholarship
Rupert L. Lyn, Jr. was a passionate, fun-loving force in the world. He was known by friends and family for his altruistic values, sense of humor, and commitment to being a light in others’ lives. Messages of grief following his passing streamed in from around the world and showcased his influence, inspiring his family to open a scholarship fund dedicated to continuing his legacy of meaningful connections. The purpose of this scholarship fund is to support students pursuing the FIU Global Learning Medallion to be able to complete a capstone project: globally focused research, internship, study abroad, or language study. Students will be selected based on meeting the criteria of a capstone project set forth by the Office of Global Learning and selected based on proven financial need in order to continue and finalize said project. The recipient will receive a $500 scholarship award. Deadline: March 2, 2020.
Minimum eligibility requirements:
- Full time undergraduate student
- Enrolled in the Global Learning Medallion program at FIU
