Professor Winston C. Boteler International Study Abroad Scholarship
The Professor Winston C. Boteler International Study Abroad Scholarship was created in memory of Winston C. Boteler (1921-2016). A native of Cedartown, Georgia, Mr. Boteler earned his Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 1952. Hooked on inventing, he worked at the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment Station (now the Georgia Tech Research Institute) while pursuing his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering, which he earned in 1956. He traveled the world as an engineering consultant and became a devotee of physical fitness inspired by Georgia Tech's innovative PEACH program which started him running in his late 50s. He ran countless road races until age 90, including many years of the Peachtree Road Race. The Professor Winston C. Boteler International Study Abroad Scholarship shall continue his legacy at his alma mater and serve as inspiration to future generations of students as they pursue study abroad opportunities at Georgia Tech.

World Student Fund
The World Student Fund (WSF) began, after WWII, in 1948 with the purpose of improving post-war, German-American relations through education, and was one of the earliest international exchange programs at Georgia Tech. The WSF quickly grew to encompass exchange students from all over the world and has helped close to 1,000 students study abroad. In the early days, the money for the scholarships was raised by passing a hat, twice a year, during Georgia Tech football games for donations. The scholarship program continues today as a result of the generosity of former WSF Scholars and the World Student Fund Exchange Club is still a very active organization on campus today.
