Kelsey Coker ’11, who just completed undergraduate degrees in English and Spanish last year, was hoping for some financial help for graduate school.

What she received was a $20,000 scholarship as the top winner of the Golden Key International Honour Society Graduate Scholar Award. She was one of only 11 considered for the award, which is based on achievements in academics, leadership, and service. From that group, one top scholar is selected. The scholarship can be used for study at any institution in the world.

Coker chose to enroll in the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics in Dallas, Texas.
