Congrats to our Risman Scholarship award recipient, Ariel Kogan

The Marion C. and William B. Risman Family scholarship in Jewish Studies is a scholarship granted to a student with a minimum GPA of 3.5 who is pursuing a minor in Jewish Studies. This considerable scholarship is renewable for up to two additional years. It may be applied to any of the costs associated with attending KSU.

We are proud to announce that the first recipient of this new award is current sophomore Ariel Kogan. He is majoring in biotechnology and is a minor in Jewish Studies. He has just returned from the Jewish Studies Program’s study abroad course in Poland. He has also been very active with Hillel and Chabad on campus since coming to Kent State. Ariel was born in Mexico City and immigrated with his family to Akron, OH in 2012. As Director of the Jewish Studies Program, it gives me great pleasure to recognize Ariel’s achievements and reward him for his academic excellence.

We wish him Mazal Tov and continued success!
