100 Years of Opportunity: Asian Women’s Global Engagement

Barbour Centennial Celebrations

Barbour Scholar Rackham logo Barbour Scholar Rackham logo
This panel will bring together Barbour Scholars for a panel to reflect on Levi Barbour’s original motivation for creating his scholarship, and to seek to examine how the mission has been transformed over time and into the modern day. When Barbour first traveled throughout Asia, he met several women who had studied at the University of Michigan and then returned home to aid their countries’ development. Barbour wanted to provide the same opportunity for more women, who frequently faced obstacles to advancement in their home countries, to receive a western education. The Barbour Scholarship has survived through a highly dynamic century that has seen dramatic changes in the relationships between the United States and the home countries of many Barbour Scholars, the rise of globalism, and incredible innovations across many fields of study. Join us for a conversation amongst Barbour Scholars whose experiences span decades and fields of study. Please email rackham.alums@umich.edu with questions or for more information.

The panel precedes a networking event for current Barbour Scholars and alumnae.
