Bogart awarded Luce Scholarship — a first for Ohio State

EngineersSenior Honors student Jacob Bogart has been named Ohio State's first Luce Scholar. The scholarship provides funding and training for a one-year professional placement in Asia. Eighteen scholarships are awarded annually to outstanding seniors and recent graduates across the country. This year, the Luce Scholars were chosen among 155 nominees.

As a Luce Scholar, Bogart will spend a year in a yet-to-be-determined professional placement in an Asian country. A placement is individually arranged for each scholar on the basis of his or her professional interest, background and qualifications. Past Luce Scholars interested in human rights, such as Bogart, have been placed with the Human Rights and Development Foundation in Thailand and the Commission for the Disappeared & Victims of Violence in Indonesia.
