Grand Trunk has announced the 2012 Study Abroad Scholarship winners.  Alll three winners will be blogging throughout the semester at http://www.grandtrunkgoods.com/blog/

It will be great to see their photos, videos, and read their thoughts.

Grand Prize: Priyanka Shah

Priyanka is a Sophomore studying Sports Medicine at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. We loved Priyanka’s creative video and she followed it up encouraging her friends and family daily to vote for her via her Facebook and Twitter accounts. Priyanka will spend next semester in Lausanne, Switerland through Pepperdine’s International Campus program. We can’t wait to follow her adventure through her travelogue.




Runner-Up: Zak Suhar

Zak is a Junior studying Business Management and Spanish at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, OH. The moment we saw Zak’s video, we knew he was exactly the kind of Grand Trunk ambassador that we were hoping to receive a video from. He is already an experienced and recognized blogger, and we can’t wait to see happens when he begins his adventure. Next semester, Zak will be fine tuning his Spanish skills while at the University of Alicante in Alicante, Spain.


Honorable Mention: Caleb Timmerman

Caleb is a Sophomore studying Psychology and Marketing at Berry College in Mount Berry, GA. Throughout the contest, it became clear that Caleb would not accept anything less than receiving the #1 rank in vote getting. That relentlessness has paid off, as he has been chosen as our final Grand Trunk ambassador. Caleb’s adventure next semester will be awesome to follow, as with the Berry College program he is participating in, he will travel to Switzerland, England, France, Italy, The Azores.
