Jérôme Lohez 9/11 Scholarship Foundation 2013-2014 Scholars

The Lohez Foundation is proud to announce its scholarship recipients for 2013-2014 – five outstanding young people who represent the current international “class” of Lohez Scholars. This stellar group includes our second set of scholars who will complete their joint graduate studies between institutions located in both France and China.

Annabelle Libeau, 2013
(France / Dual Degree: Sciences Po / Columbia University)

Annabelle Libeau is a dual-degree student at Sciences Po, Paris, and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. She will soon obtain her Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree in International Finance with a focus on Emerging Markets.

Annabelle is a financial analyst with international experience in investment banking in developing countries. She also has an advanced degree in Finance and Business Ethics from NEOMA Business School (Reims, MS), France.

In the past she worked as an analyst in international finance and government.

She defines herself as a relationship-building person, passionate about forging strong personal links by sharing her expertise and cultural experiences. Her community engagement is devoted to facilitating the successful emergence of an enlightened community of social entrepreneurs. She sees her study year in New York as an exceptional opportunity to immerse herself in one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world.

Annabelle has also received the Rotary Foundation's Global Grant and the Zonta Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship. She speaks French, English, Russian, and Spanish.

Jean-Sébastien Marre, 2013
(France / Dual Degree: Sciences Po / Fudan University)

Jean-Sébastien Marre is currently a graduate student within the Sciences Po/Fudan University dual-degree program on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs.

A deep believer in multiculturalism and the dialogue between cultures and civilizations, Jean-Sébastien believes that the best way to learn about and share the values of peace, fraternity, and international unity is through an education-based understanding of other cultures.

He was introduced to political science, international relations and law during his undergraduate studies, and he had the opportunity to discover the United States during an exchange program at Georgetown University, where, he says, he “became a member of an incredibly lively and diverse multicultural community.”

Seeking a career in diplomacy at the end of his studies, Jean-Sébastien believes his year spent at Fudan University will enable him to strengthen his knowledge of China’s international and domestic policies. Above all, he looks forward to gaining a deeper understanding of Chinese – and to a larger extent, East Asian – culture and society, including the legacies of historical Chinese civilization as they impact upon modern societal trends.

Jean-Sébastien will use the Lohez scholarship award to finance his short-term study at Seoul National University's Winter Course on Human Rights and Asia in South Korea.


Lohez Foundation Partners on Europe/Asia Dual-Degree Program

The Graduate Dual-Degree Program on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs is a transnational joint-venture between Sciences Po in Paris, France, and Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

These two great universities have partnered with the Jérôme Lohez 9/11 Scholarship Foundation to open scholarship opportunities for all students who are enrolled in the graduate dual-degree program. The first year of study will take place in Paris, and the second year of study will take place in Shanghai.

The Europe and Asia in Global Affairs dual degree is available to all students who are interested in analyzing European and Asian studies from both comparative and international relations perspectives.

The European Union sees Asia as the new frontier of its international policies due to the important challenges it faces on an economic and a geopolitical level. At the same time, this dual degree is aimed at European specialists who would like to deepen their understanding of Europe through a comparison with Asia; at Asian specialists who aspire to strengthen their understanding of Asia in relation to other regions; and at International Relations specialists eager to acquire a more specific insight on the challenges and content of Europe-Asia relations. The students enrolled in this dual-degree program will benefit from the research network that exists between Sciences Po and Fudan University in international relations.

Graduates of this dual degree will have access to a wide range of career openings in European affairs in Europe or elsewhere in the world.

The deadline for applications to the Lohez Foundation is Sept. 30, 2013. The board will meet to review submissions in mid-October and scholarship winners will be announced in early November. The award presentation reception is usually held at the French Consul’s residence in Shanghai.
