Sponsors' Corner Page Allows for Better Communication between Sponsors and Scholars
We've launched the Sponsors' Corner page to provide more opportunities for our sponsors to connect with their scholars and stay abreast of VISEDAL's latest happenings. For example, this page has more information about how sponsors can now send their scholars a letter and/or a picture at any time through our Sponsor-Scholar Connection Program.
Summer 2013 Sponsor Videos are Live
This summer our intern, Taylor Stephens, helped our scholars write and record video messages for their sponsors and friends in the United States. Check out his work at our Summer 2013 Scholar Videos page.
