The Jérôme Lohez 9/11 Scholarship Foundation 2014-2015 Scholars

The Lohez Foundation is proud to announce its scholarship recipients for 2014-2015 – five outstanding young people who represent the current international “class” of Lohez Scholars. This stellar group includes our third set of scholars who will complete their joint studies between institutions located in both France and China.


Camille Andrieu, 2014
(France / Dual Master's Degree, Sciences Po / Fudan University, Europe and Asia in Global Affairs)

Successful in athletic competition both in high school and as an undergraduate (training with Aix-en-Provence professional team and selection to the France women’s national group), Camille also pursued a dual degree in Political Science at the Institute of Political Studies (IEP) in Aix-en-Provence and Law at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

In her first two years she achieved the status of valedictorian of her class of approximately 200 students. This ranking allowed her to choose to spend her third year of the IEP at the University of Michigan in the United States.

Now in her second year of the dual master's degree program, “Europe and Asia in Global Affairs” between Sciences Po and Fudan University, Camille seizes the opportunity to investigate Asian issues and relationships between China and the European Union. She plans to use the Lohez Scholarship and the Chinese Government Scholarship to make the most of her academic year in Shanghai, as well as to attend the London School of Economics-Peking University 2015 Summer School, held in Beijing.

After a first experience of the diplomatic sphere with the National Model United Nations 2014 Project, Camille perceives the opening of a door to a career in the French Foreign Affairs sector in direct relation to China.


Barbara Crépeau, 2014
(France / Dual Master's Degree, EPITA / Stevens Institute of Technology)

Barbara Crépeau is completing her final year of a French Master's in Computer Science, specialized in RealTime and Embedded Systems, at EPITA. In 2015, she will be coming to Stevens Institute of Technology to pursue a dual-degree in Computer Science.

Barbara has dreamed since childhood of visiting the United States. She has long admired the American values of individual liberty, cultural tolerance, and egalitarianism.

While studying at Stevens, she looks forward to experiencing nearby New York City, with its real diversity of people and dynamic cultural and business environments.

"There are many startups [in New York]," says Barbara, "which means that people have the means to achieve their ideas and create businesses. Among many examples, New York saw the birth of Tumblr, Etsy, Kayak, Shutterstock - that almost everyone has now heard of. NYC startups show that the Silicon Valley does not have a monopoly when it comes to creating big companies."

Barbara approaches her American experience as a new adventure, "a new start in a great country that will help me in the future by opening my mind further and giving me a chance to learn more and to be better prepared for what is going to come next."
