“The English-Speaking Union Luard Morse Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce Kennedy Williams as the next Scholar. Kennedy, a sophomore biology major at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, represents the highest caliber of student-scholars our nation has to offer. The ESU is honored to support her educational efforts as she broadens her horizons with this study-abroad opportunity to the United Kingdom. Now more than ever, the need for global dialogue and relationships between people is critical to a peaceful future. The Scholarship Committee and the Luard Morse alumni community joins me in wishing Kennedy, and all the finalists and applicants, the very best,” stated Darrell W. Hill, chair of the ESU Luard Morse Scholarship Committee. Kennedy Williams will receive $30,000 toward a semester of study at any university of her choosing in the United Kingdom during the 2024-2025 academic year.
Kennedy intends to continue her study of Biology in the United Kingdom in pursuit of her long-term career goal of becoming a forensic medical examiner. Given her strong academic and leadership track record, we are confident that Kennedy will excel during her semester abroad.
“Since 1969 The English Speaking Union’s Luard Morse Scholarships have worked to advance the connection between Historically Black Colleges and top universities throughout the United Kingdom. The ESU is proud to welcome Kennedy Williams to this impressive roster of scholars. “ Karen Karpowich, President/ Executive Director.
