Cynea Figures-Mormon Receives Scholarship to Study Abroad

Cynea B. Figures-Mormon, a junior at Bridgewater College, received a scholarship to study abroad during the 2013 spring semester in La Réunion, a French island located to the east of Madagascar.

Figures-Mormon, who is participating in the study abroad program under International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP), was awarded a $1,000 Annette Kade Scholarship through The New York Community Trust-Annette Kade Fund.

The scholarship will help Figures-Mormon fulfill a childhood dream. “As a little girl, I dreamed about traveling the world,” she said. “I am grateful for this opportunity.”

An international studies and French double major, Figures-Mormon will study at the Université de la Réunion.

Figures-Mormon enjoys learning new things and is looking forward to the opportunity to increase her communication skills in the French language.

Figures-Mormon is the daughter of Bryant and Cindi Figures-Mormon of Disputanta, Va.
