Hiliary Echo Douglas was a dedicated study abroad advocate, beloved daughter, wife, mother, and colleague who passed away in 2008. In 1999 Hiliary traveled to Vietnam with a Fulbright Fellowship to investigate modern theatre in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. After two more years working for various international cultural collaborations in Vietnam, Hiliary joined CET Academic Programs as the Vietnam Immersion Resident Director. Sadly, Hiliary’s young life was cut short in July 2008 by a car accident, hence her family’s desire to establish a legacy in her honor.

Hosted and administered by the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA), the Hiliary Echo Douglas Scholarship will award up to $5000 to a student for use during the 2012-2013 academic year.

Eligibility: The Hiliary Echo Douglas scholarship will be given to a student who demonstrates Hiliary’s love for Vietnam and other cultures, her desire to give back to the world community, and her contagious love for life.
