Alison Gilmore, a Sport Analytics major in the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, was selected as one of 35 Syracuse University students who will be 2023-24 Remembrance Scholars.

The scholarships, now in their 34th year, were founded as a tribute to—and means of remembering—the students studying in London and Florence through Syracuse University who were killed in the Dec. 21, 1988, bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The scholarships are funded through an endowment supported by gifts from alumni, friends, parents, and corporations.

Remembrance Scholars are chosen in their junior year through a competitive selection process. The selection committee is composed of University faculty and staff and current Remembrance Scholars. The $5,000 scholarships are awarded on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and service to the community.
