HOUSTON—University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Office of Intercultural and International Student Services hosted a lunch for a few of the finalists in the Celebrating Our Elders scholarship project who will be transferring to UH-Clear Lake this fall.

Area high school seniors and community college students are invited to apply for Celebrating Our Elders scholarships in spring 2008 by writing an essay about how an African-American or Hispanic elder’s support and inspiration has impacted his/her life personally and academically. If chosen as a finalist by the scholarship committee comprising area African-American and Hispanic leaders, community college leaders and university representatives, the essays are displayed with a photo of the applicant and his/her elder.

The next exhibit honoring Celebrating Our Elders finalists will begin Sept. 22 in the university’s Bayou Building, Atrium I. For more information about Celebrating Our Elders, visit or call the Office of Intercultural and International Student Services, 281-283-2575.
