News + Events : International Business student Yazmin Penzien awarded Women in Logistics scholarship
On behalf of Women in Logistics, I'd like to congratulate International Business student Yazmin Penzien for winning a scholarship from Women in Logistics.
Yazmin expects to receive her undergraduate business degree with a concentration in International Business in spring 2014.
Yazmin impressed the panel of judges with her stellar scholastic achievements, her active participation in local professional societies and a flawlessly written and inspirational essay on how she was going to use her interest in international trade to benefit Latin American countries, including her native Mexico.
Professor Ungson's enthusiastic letter of support was the icing on the cake. The award was originally for $2000, but the judges were so moved that they voted to award her an extra $500, the first time this has happened in my 10 years oversight of the scholarship program!
Every year Women in Logistics holds a competition and awards scholarships to Bay Area students, men and women alike, who plan to work in the logistics and supply chain management field.
Since I became scholarship director in 2004, we have disbursed $46,000 in scholarship moneys to 27 students across many Bay Area institutions, with San Francisco State's College of Business students garnering the most awards. I should note that while I administer and promote the program, I refrain from judging given potential conflicts of interest. Thus, Yazmin and her fellow students and alumni have earned these scholarships on the basis of their own merits.
