Abroad for biz studies

Two Okanagan College students have received coveted awards allowing them to further their education abroad.

Madeline Kempf and Cassandra Lum of the college's School of Business are two of only six college students in the province to receive the Premier’s International Scholarships this year. The awards are valued at between $6,000 and $10,000 each.

“It’s great to see students gaining international experience through support from the Irving K. Barber BC Scholarship Society,” said Jim Hamilton, college president.

For Lum, from Penticton, receiving the scholarship was the ticket to fulfilling a long-standing dream of studying in France.

“I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity,” said Lum, who will graduate next June with a Bachelor of Business Administration specializing in accounting. “I think it’s extremely beneficial to have a worldly view when it comes to business, but beyond that I firmly believe travel is just such an important part of how we learn and grow outside of the classroom.”

Lum will depart for EDHEC Business School in Nice at the end of August.
