Each year, 35 Syracuse University Remembrance Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students on the basis of distinguished academic achievement, citizenship, and service to community. Four Falk College students from the Class of 2014 have been awarded this prestigious honor for the 2013-14 academic year. They include:

  • Janessa Bonti, nutrition science, Bronx, NY;
  • Ariella Davis, child and family studies and dual major in the College of Arts and Sciences in policy studies, Narragansett, RI;
  • Clifford Jacobs; child and family studies with a minor in exercise science-dance, College of Arts and Sciences, Lewiston, NY, and;
  • Sieglinder Mghenyi, public health, Syracuse, NY.

“To be named a Remembrance Scholar is one of the highest honors at Syracuse University that recognizes students’ outstanding academic achievement and service to others, which is consistent with the Falk College’s priorities for all of its students. We are very proud of Janessa, Ariella, Clifford and Sieglinder—and all of this year’s scholars,” notes Diane Lyden Murphy, dean, Falk College.

The Remembrance Scholarships were established by Syracuse University to honor and remember the 35 students studying abroad with Syracuse University who were among the 270 men, women, and children killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988.
