Elena Szost named as

2014 WMWTA Scholarhip Receipt

The West Michigan World Trade Association is pleased to announce the selection of Elena Szost as its 2014 scholarship winner.

A junior at Grand Valley State University, Elena majors in International Relations and Economics and minors in East Asian Studies.  She has gained acceptance to a year-long program at Waseda University (Tokyo), one of the most prestigious higher-learning institutions in Japan.  The WMWTA scholarship will partially defray associated expenses.  Living abroad will give Elena unique insight into the commercial and cultural environment of a leading Asian market, as well as the opportunity to be immersed in Japanese, which she has studied for over two years.  Elena hopes to apply this practical knowledge through a career in the foreign service.

Elena Szost was formally recognized on May 6, at a dinner held in conjunction with the annual World Trade Week.  The WMWTA congratulates Elena Szost on her ongoing academic achievements and looks forward to her report regarding her experience.

My United Kingdom Journey

As a part of WMWTA's commitment to West Michigan, the organization awards a deserving student from a West Michigan post-secondary academic institution $1,000 in scholarship funds to expand their academic knowledge for a qualified study abroad program.

"Collectively this trip aided me in learning a great deal about not only myself but about the World outside of Grand Rapids, MI, and everything it has to offer. With financial help from the West Michigan World Trade Association, I was able to further develop my ability to communicate more efficiently across cultures from all over Europe, which I hope will one day aid me in the business workplace."   Read more
