Student Receives Endowment Scholarship

April 26, 2017

Congratulations to undergraduate student, Alexandra Laura Duhaime, for her award of the Modern Languages Endowment scholarship. In this final year to receive a B.A in Modern Languages and Literatures, Duhaime will once again return to Russia to enhance her intensive Russian study with the help of Project Global Officer. With Project GO, Duhaime will perfect her language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills as a future military officer. In addition to her study abroad experience, Duhaime’s credibility is demonstrated through various awards and leadership experience. A few of the most notable: Achieving President’s List 3 times for scholastic distinction in a semester of a GPA of 4.0, AFROTC (2014 and 2015) for outstanding performance as both AS100 and AS200, and multiple honor awards for outstanding achievement in Russian. Most recently, in April she received The Military Academic Excellence Award on behalf of the Billy Mitchell Chapter and the AOC Educational Foundation, Inc.

Apart from her achievements, Duhaime has developed her leadership skills through: the Air Force Reserves Officers’ Training Corps, where she is currently positioned as a Standards and Evaluations Squadron Commander; Victory, where she as a co-leader for group bible study for ROTC cadets; an Honor Guard Commander, and has completed all her Air Force Field Training at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center.

Duhaime further expressed, “This scholarship for me is vital. It allows me the privilege to continue studying and concentrating not only on my role as a student, but also as a future leader. It allows me to exert my full potential into my education and further allows me to advance in my proficiency of Russian as well as my understanding of Russia and the surrounding region. This scholarship will enable me to set the foundations of my education which I will not carry over, but also build upon, when I enter my job. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.”
