Park University senior Rachel Dryden, a geography/physical science major from Dearborn, Mo has been awarded two prestigious, internationally competitive fellowships for the 2012-13 academic year. The first honor, the Killam Fellowship, is an award by the Canadian Fulbright Commission to study abroad in Canada. It provides an opportunity for exceptional undergraduate students from universities in the United States to spend either one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student in Canada. The second honor, the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst/German Academic Exchange Service Undergraduate Scholarship, is an award to research abroad in Germany for a semester. Dryden, who attended North Platte High School and is a member of Park’s Degree with Honors Program, will study in Canada at McGill University in Montreal, in the fall of 2012, and conduct research on climate impacts and vulnerabilities in Berlin at the Freie Universität’s Institute of Meteorology in the spring of 2013. She will spend the entire 2012-13 academic year abroad through these two awards.
