Elon student Wins Global Service Initiative Scholarship
Elon University junior Ryan McElroy has received the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation's Global Service Initiative Scholarship.
The GSI service-immersion trip offers members a seven-day experience to Jamaica and Washington, D.C. with brothers from across the country. Brothers will be engaged in direct, hands-on service, while engaging in reflection that will increase self-awareness and have an impact on future experiences with the fraternity and beyond.
The foundation's website notes, "GSI is unique and Delta Upsilon is proud to have developed this initiative. It serves a dual role in that it is not only the international philanthropy, but also the international service of the Fraternity."
McElroy joined Delta Upsilon's chapter at Elon in Spring 2013. Organization leaders said they are proud of his accomplishments and look forward to hearing about his contributions to communities abroad.
