Contribute to the Scholarship for International Students!

The John E. Keshishoglou Scholarship for International Students, established in 2004, is an endowed fund, to be awarded to an international student with academic excellence and who has demonstrated financial need.

The Keshishoglou Fund in Global Communications, provided the resources to create this scholarship. It was initiated by faculty in the Park School and assisted with gifts from faculty, friends, and professor emeritus Keshishoglou. An additional fund has also been designated: the Keshishoglou Fund for International Scholars.  It will provide expenses and/or honorariums for visiting international lecturers, professors, or scholars.

Prof. Keshishoglou came to the College in 1965 as chairman of the Department of Television-Radio and director of the Instructional Resources Center. During his time at the College, Keshishoglou served as the founding dean for the School of Communications from 1971 to 1979. He also developed the international exchange program between the school and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

The Office of International Programs and student leaders representing the international student clubs will continue to work toward enlarging the endowment for this scholarship. They welcome gifts from students, alumni, and all members of the Ithaca College community. Anyone interested in supporting this fund may contact Elayne Nicholas, Associate Director of Special Programs, 607-274-1286 or enicholas@ithaca.edu.  All gifts will be acknowledged and a tax receipt given.
