Meet Drexel’s 2013 Boren Scholar

Kailey KlugeKailey Kluge (International Area Studies, BA ’15, PHC) received the prestigious Boren Scholarship for study in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Kailey has been studying Russian since her first term at Drexel and is planning to spend the entire academic year 2013-14 in Russia: two semesters at the language intensive CIEE St. Petersburg program followed by a co-op at an NGO or international exchange organization in Moscow.

Kailey’s interest in international education has led her to work at Drexel’s Office of International Programs both as a co-op and as a student worker. After graduation, she plans to work in the federal government to fulfill the service requirement of the Boren Scholarship.

Huge congratulations Kailey!
