the nohemi gonzalez scholarship
Statement from Congressman Alan Lowenthal (D-CA47)
I am so grateful to The French American Fund and the California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) for honoring Nohemi Gonzalez with this scholarship. At just 23, Nohemi was taken from the world far too early. As a young CSULB student, she sought to expand her study and understanding of the world around her by studying at the Strate School of Design in Paris. This scholarship will give future CSULB students seeking to study art and design to have the opportunity to study in Paris, following the example that Nohemi sought and strived for herself.
[In November 2016 as France and the world were commemorating the 2015 attacks that claimed so many innocent lives, Congressman Lowenthal addressed this video message to our audience in Paris.]
a Message from us
This program honors the memory of this wonderful young lady who believed in closer ties between America and France. We will welcome the first CSULB California American student this next Fall 2018 at the French Palais-Bourbon for a semester as part-time legislative assistant. The student will also enroll in a course at the renowned Sorbonne-Panthéon University in Paris.
