I humbly thank Mr. Freeman and the The Freeman Foundation for supporting me financially in my year-long journey in China. This study abroad experience would not be possible without your generosity.

Ready to take on Asia!
The Freeman Foundation was established in 1994 through a bequest and in memory of the businessman and benefactor Mansfield Freeman, a former director of AIG. The Shidler College of Business is grateful to have the Freeman Foundation as a partner in offering travel scholarships to deserving undergraduate students interested in studying abroad to Asia.

"Completing my capstone year in Nanjing, China will allow me the opportunity to gain fluency in the Chinese language as well as experience in the business environment. I look forward to immersing myself in the culture, and learning more about myself in the process."
