Holy Cross Students win Prestigious Scholarships

April 15th, 1999 by 

WORCESTER, Mass. – Three Holy Cross students have received awards in national competitions that will permit them to continue their studies after graduation.  They are:

Alexandra McGowan, a member of the Class of 1999, who has received a $10,000 scholarship from the St. Andrew’s Society of the State of New York to spend a year at a Scottish university.  She will attend St. Andrews University, where she will study Scottish literature and history and Scots-Gaelic.  This is a continuation of her study of the Irish language during her Junior Year Abroad experience last year at the University of Galway, Ireland.

Terra Potocky, also a member of the Class of 1999, has received a Fulbright research award to pursue organic chemistry at the University of Tromsø, Norway with Dr. Kristina Luthman.  She will apply approaches she developed while working on her fourth-year project with Professor Tim Curran of the Holy Cross chemistry department.

Marisa Tarantini, a member of the Class of 2000, won a Beinecke Brothers Memorial Scholarship to complete her Holy Cross degree in music and studio.  The scholarship will then allow her to undertake graduate study leading to a Ph.D. in musicology.  This $32,000 scholarship is one of just 20 awarded nationwide to juniors nominated from 82 schools.
