    August, 1999


    August 6, 1999- Two weeks ago we posted that Mr. Giovanni Ruffini, Assistant to the the Crown Council, has confirmed to Chora that the Council had mailed acceptance letters to fifteen Ethiopian scholarship recipients and that the Council is waiting for their replies. We also added that these scholarships would enable the selected Ethiopian students to study at the University of PACEM, reportedly located about an hour's drive from Dallas, Texas. However, since we were unable to locate "PACEM University" anywhere in the US, we opted to remove the news after a few days. We have now learned that both Prince Ermias Haile Selassie and Mr. Ruffini have confirmed to the responsible authorities in Addis that the intended scholarships are for La Roche College in Pennsylvania. Informed sources also tell us that four students have already started processing their applications. We are pleased with this news. We would also like to congratulate the parents and the scholarships recipients: Adibar Tikebalchehu!!

    July, 1999


    July 12, 1999- Informed sources say that the Addis Ababa University, the Gettysburg Institute and Cornell University are finalizing an agreement to train 15 US students in Ethiopia. The program will start on June 1, 1999 and will last until July 15, 1999. The six weeks intensive courses will focus on the history of Ethiopian civilization, Ethiopic writing, and an Introduction to African religion with a special concentration on Ethiopian Christianity. The informed sources also say that the courses had been already reviewed and approved by the institutions. Dr Cecil C.Gray, Dr. Ayele Bekerie and Dr. Daniel R. DeNicola will lead the training program.



    July 7, 1999- 13 Ethiopians are currently enrolled at various United World Colleges (UWC) in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Norway, and South Africa. This coming fall, six additional promising and needy students from Ethiopian public(government)schools are expected to attend the various UWC colleges. We are very grateful for this assistance. We encourage Ethiopians to visit the website of our friends at UWC.
