Jane Gluckmann and Carol Rausch Go Global Scholarship
Made Possible By: Missy Gluckman & Kyle Rausch
Description: This scholarship will be awarded to one student each year planning to study abroad in Mexico, Central America, South America, France, or Germany. All U.S. citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled as an undergraduate at a college or university in the U.S. and who are planning to study abroad for at least 4 weeks (28 days) are eligible to apply.
The scholarship is established in memory of mothers, Jane Gluckmann and Carol Rausch. Jane Gluckmann was a mom to her daughters Kerry, Missy and her “sons” Rodrigo (from Mexico) and Sergio (from Brasil), as well as others in need; she was most proud of her kids when they were empowered and living fearlessly. Born in France, Carol Rausch traveled Europe with a father and husband, who both served in the United States Air Force; she was first and foremost a loving mom of three children, and shared with them her enthusiasm for travel and passion for other cultures. May the inspirational spirit of these two mothers live on in future FEA scholarship recipients who are curious about the world, and seeking their own educational adventures.

” . . . Each day, when I talk to my homestay mother about her life experiences, when I converse with the teller for the Subte, when I cross the street with them while the pedestrian signal is red, I get a chance to remove my American glasses and wear my Argentine ones.”
About the Scholarship: In the Words of Missy Gluckmann and Kyle Rausch
Our mothers inspired us to see the world, to adore languages, to care about global issues and people who are not our most immediate neighbors as well as those who are, to study abroad, and to be fearless in our pursuits of global citizenship.
This new scholarship is in honor of our mothers – Jane Gluckmann and Carol Rausch – two women who encouraged us, sacrificed for us, loved us, gave more than we can ever describe, and passed way too soon. As our moms taught us that we are capable and to dream big, we are aiming for an endowed scholarship to honor our mothers and to help fund other young people to go abroad. To do so, we need your support! Scroll to the bottom to make a donation in their honor. Thank you!
