IBE major earns first ever Levy Scholarship

Huilai Gu ’19 has yet to set foot on Lehigh University’s campus but already knows that she made the right decision to attend next fall as an Integrated Business and Engineering major.

Huilai was accepted through the Early Decision process and was awarded the first ever Karen and Paul S. Levy ’69 International Scholarship. The full scholarship, which, in addition to room and board, includes financial support for undergraduate research, international internship opportunities, and round-trip transportation so Huilai can visit her family each year.

The scholarship was established by alumnus Paul S. Levy ’69 and his wife Karen to support bright international scholars.

"The Levy scholarship enables students like Huilai to take advantage of all the opportunities that Lehigh has to offer, regardless of their financial situation," explains Morgan Volkart ’06, ’10G, director of International Recruitment.

"Lehigh University, especially its integrated engineering programs, is a perfect fit," says Huilai. "I [am] so excited and grateful beyond words. I immediately shared this wonderful news with my parents, and they felt so thrilled and proud for me. It truly is a generous gift and a great honor."
