Kai Yin “Queenie” Ho, a senior at Augustana College, Rock Island, is the recipient of the Davies-Jackson Scholarship valued at $50,000.

An anthropology and biology double major, Ho will use the scholarship to pursue graduate studies at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge in England. The award covers fees and expenses, including room and board.

The Davies-Jackson Scholarship is given to graduating seniors with exceptional academic records who are the first in their family to graduate from college. The prestigious award offers students who demonstrate significant achievement the opportunity to study internationally and to immerse themselves in the educational environment at Cambridge.

The primary purpose of the scholarship is to provide an educational opportunity similar to the one received by the donor, who became part of the Cambridge intellectual community and vowed to give back the gift he was given.
