|JoAnn Boland International Scholarship Fund|
Several years ago, a group of AIESEC alumni created a scholarship fund in memory of JoAnn Boland, who served at AIESEC United States as Vice President of Human Resources in 1992 –1993 and as Local Committee President of AIESEC Miami of Ohio in 1991-92. Throughout her career in AIESEC, JoAnn focused on the development of AIESEC’s international leaders. She was an international leader herself and inspired others to follow in her footsteps as she fostered the development of over 70 local committees during her tenure at AIESEC US. Tragically, shortly before she was due to depart on her own international traineeship in Finland, JoAnn died in a car accident on February 22, 1994. After her death, several AIESEC friends asked about creating a scholarship fund in her memory. The JoAnn Boland International Scholarship Fund was launched in 2000 with contributions dedicated to sponsoring AIESEC US local committee members’ attendance at international conferences. Since its inception over 32 scholarship awards have been given.
AIESEC Life would like to encourage alumni to support the JoAnn Boland International Scholarship Fund to help sponsor the development of future AIESEC leaders. All proceeds will go toward scholarships for AIESEC US local committee members to attend international conferences.
Scholarships will be awarded annually at AIESEC US summer and winter conferences. AIESEC US will collect applications and the final selection will be made by JoAnn Boland’s AIESEC US staff team from 1992-93 (Dariusz Paczuski, Martin Alvarez, Heidi Dickert, Laura Granucci, and Renee Klosterman). After awardees attend their international conference, essays will be written summarizing what they learned and how they achieved their objectives both for themselves and for AIESEC. These essays are shared in the AIESEC Life monthly newsletter and, most recently, have been linked to the recipients' names.
Alumni electing to give specifically to the JoAnn Boland Fund may do so on this page.
