Chanti White, a Northwestern Oklahoma State University senior from Enid, has been designated as a Brad Henry International Scholar and is spending the spring semester participating in an international study and internship program at Swansea University in Wales.

White is majoring in social work with a minor in substance abuse. After graduating from Northwestern, she plans to attend the University of Oklahoma to pursue a master’s degree in social work. White hopes to become a licensed clinical social worker serving American Indian children in foster care or with families trying to stay together. She also is a member of Northwestern’s Social Workers Association of Tomorrow (SWAT).

“We are thrilled about this amazing learning opportunity for Chanti and to be a part of the Brad Henry International Scholar Program,” said Kylene Rehder, Department of Social Work chair. “Chanti’s social work knowledge of international issues, her integrity and leadership qualities make her an ideal recipient for this program.”

The State Regents provide a $10,000 stipend for students selected to participate in semester-long study or research programs affiliated with Swansea University. Academic credit for these programs will be awarded by Oklahoma regional universities.

Other scholars include Rachael Brown, University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma; Jacob Daniel, Rogers State University; Brea Jones, Southeastern Oklahoma State University; Danielle Morgan, Northeastern State University; and Shelby Nelson, University of Central Oklahoma. Each student was chosen by their institutions for the international study program, which was established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in June 2008.
