St. Lawrence's Davis United World College Scholars gathered recently for a celebration with President Daniel and Ann Sullivan, recognizing the contributions scholars make to the campus community, and the world community as well.

The program provides scholarship grants to 88 select American universities and liberal arts colleges in support of students from all over the world who have completed their pre-university studies at United World College schools (UWC). UWC schools are located in the United States, Canada, Bosnia, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Norway, Singapore, Swaziland, the United Kingdom and Venezuela.

At the event, each scholar was presented with a crystal globe from the program's founders, Shelby and Gale Davis, with a card that reads, "Congratulations on being a Davis United World College Scholar. We believe the world's future depends on talented individuals who are committed to international understanding. You are that future, and we are proud to support your education. This crystal globe is a symbol of your status as a Davis UWC Scholar and your future leadership potential. We wish you much success as you 'learn, earn and return' throughout your life."

The event also featured a report from Projects for Peace grant recipients Yuki Poudyal '09, of Nepal, and Nicole Szucs '10, of Bolivia. Two teams of students were awarded grants through the related program in its inaugural year, 2007.
