Celebrating 15 Years of the Kellogg International Scholars Program

September 28-30, 2017

Students participating in the Kellogg International Scholars Program have made the most of their time at Notre Dame. They often study and speak multiple languages and participate in more than one Notre Dame program to study, intern, participate in service or conduct research abroad during the summer and/or academic year. Several have presented at conferences as well as published their work. In the first five years of the program, two were valedictorians. During the program’s thirteen years of existence, students of the program have been awarded a number of prestigious fellowships including three Rhodes, two Truman and four Boren Scholarships as well as nine Fulbright awards.
