Rhodes senior Anne Entz, who is the recipient of the prestigious Boren Scholarship, has been studying Mandarin Chinese in Taipei, Taiwan, at the National Taiwan University for the fall 2022 semester.
Sponsored by the National Security Education Program and administered by the Institute of International Education, the scholarship funds study abroad with the goal of immersing students in a language critical to U.S. national security interests. Boren scholars are awarded from $12,500 to $25,000 determined by duration abroad.
At Rhodes, Entz is majoring in international studies, economics, and Chinese studies.
“I chose to study Mandarin in Taiwan because I have had a wonderful experience studying Chinese at Rhodes, and I wanted to continue improving my Chinese language skills in an immersive environment,” says Entz.
Entz also is a Rhodes Global Delegate who helps guides students through the study abroad application process. In the summer of 2021, she studied economics at The London School of Economics and Political Science.
