Afton B. Tew International Student Scholarship


The Office of Global Engagement supports and advocates for international students and scholars visiting and studying at Utah State University, helping them to integrate with campus and the Cache Valley community. The Afton B. Tew International Student Scholarship has been established in commemoration of the service and dedication Afton provided international students and their families on the USU campus for more than two decades.

She worked as the program coordinator for international students and then served as director, starting many programs and activities that are still in existence, including the International Banquet, International Wives Club and International Family Night.

Her legacy inspires students and scholars from around the globe. This scholarship allows her advocacy and belief in international education to continue and touch the lives of new incoming freshman and transfer students.
