A Polytechnic student is among five Purdue students who received scholarships to expand their experiences and expertise internationally.
Kathryn Harville, a senior in mechanical engineering technology from Plymouth, Ind., received a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State. She is especially interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence with linguistics and psychology, and how those fields have an impact upon artificial intelligence in global contexts.
Harville plans to travel to Spain with her scholarship. She hopes to create new technologies that can benefit both the United States and the world at large.
The Gilman Scholarships enables students to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to national security and economic competitiveness.
