Bryan Hum and Laura Wilkinson
Laura Wilkinson and Bryan Hum met during freshman orientation at NC State in 2009 and spent the next four years navigating their undergraduate careers, Laura in International Studies and Criminology and Bryan in International Studies and Political Science. Following graduation, both pursued advanced degrees and now both work in Washington DC. As recipients of donor support during their undergraduate careers, Laura and Bryan felt compelled to give back to NC State and to help other students pursue their dreams. The scholarship will provide support to students enrolled in one of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines, with a preference for students seeking a degree in Political Science or International Studies who have a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in the federal government, national security, the Intelligence Community, international affairs, government affairs or public policy or law.
