Two Kansas University students earned scholarships for international study from the Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award Foundation.
The foundation in Kansas City, Mo., has been awarding scholarships to students from KU, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., since 1985.
Hale E. Sheppard, a third-year KU law student, received the $5,000 Henry J. Talge Memorial Scholarship and $1,000 Eddie Jacobson Memorial Scholarship.
He's also working on a master's degree in Latin American studies at KU.
Frank Zelko, a KU graduate student in U.S. environmental history, received the $1,000 Jerry Smith Memorial Scholarship. He's currently doing research in London.
In 1973, the foundation began presenting the Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award. Recipients are persons of national or international prominence who have made a contribution to world peace.
Former U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum Baker, a KU graduate, received the Truman award this year.
