Abby Gibbons, a senior majoring in history at Columbus State University, will study abroad at the University of Oxford this spring.
“Studying at the University of Oxford provides me with an opportunity to focus on my education on the specific period that I want to specialize in as a professional historian,” said Gibbons.
Gibbons received a $1,000 scholarship from Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and support from Kyle Spencer to cover her tuition at Oxford.
The Spencer family has provided generous support for CSU’s study abroad program at Oxford since the 1980s. In 2002, they funded CSU’s purchase of the Spencer House at Oxford, which has provided a home for more than 200 students and faculty members participating in study abroad programs at Oxford.
