Thiel College (https://www.thiel.edu/), a leading liberal arts college in northwest Pennsylvania, is one of only 14 colleges in the program.

Quinn Ursprung '20, of Bel Air, Md.; Samantha Kurchena '20, of Bridgeville, Pa.; and Tanyra Williams '19, of Cleveland, Ohio, will each receive $5,000 from the Heinz Endowments to fund their study abroad experiences.
