The Rotary Club of Charleston sponsored Paula Kaufman of Charleston as the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar for the 2010-11 academic year.  She is a native of Charleston, WV and a graduate of South Charleston High School.
Paula will study and live in the Netherlands for 10 months. She will attend Utrecht University where she is working towards a master’s degree in cultural history. She graduated from Brown University this May with honors with degrees in American studies and literary arts.
The Rotary Ambassadorial Program aims to further international understanding and friendship across country boundaries. While abroad, scholars serve as goodwill ambassadors to the host country and give presentations about their homelands to Rotary clubs and other groups. The scholarship will provide funding to help cover round-trip transportation, tuition, fees, room and board expenses and educational supplies for one year of post-graduate studies.
Other winners from West Virginia’s Northern District include Meaghan Cochrane of Buckhannon and Sarah Perry of Morgantown. They will study in Belgium and Scotland, respectively.
