Maddision May, 2016 Morse Scholarship Recipient

Political Science and International Studies Major, Leadership Studies and French Minors


"My internship was in a rural part of central Ghana. I was employed by the National Center for Civic Education, and during my down time, I taught in a kindergarten classroom and coached a soccer team of young women. The Morse Scholarship covered my trip costs and my living expenses. Soccer is a huge part of Ghanaian culture, and thanks to the Morse Scholarship, I was able to co-found the very first soccer team for girls in the central Ghana area. I am optimistic that the creation of this team will ignite a trend of empowerment of women through sports all across the beautiful country."
