The American Resource Center (ARC) celebrated its 70th Anniversary on Thursday, May 19. Thank you to our guest speakers Professor Emeritus Markku Henriksson, International Affairs Journalist Teri Schultz from Brussels, and PhD Candidate Janniina Vlasov from Tampere University!
This year also marks the 10th Anniversary of the ARC Grant program. So far 15 Finnish students have received a scholarship from the ARC. We were proud to present certificates to the 2015 ARC Grant winners Juuso Koskinen and Evelina Salo. Mr. Koskinen studies at Turku University, and the working title of his Master’s Thesis is “Anchor for Neutrality – United States Role in Finnish Foreign Policy 1980-1990.” Ms. Salo studies at Åbo Akademi University and the working title of her Master’s Thesis is “’I am in Here: David Foster Wallace’s Investigation of Mind and Self.” Congratulations!
