College of Staten Island alumnus Michael Gigante ’14 has been accepted to Kyushu University’s Political Science Master’s program and has also been offered a Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Japan (MEXT) scholarship, which will cover all tuition and provide a stipend to supplement living expenses.

“I am delighted to hear about this positive outcome.  No doubt the acceptance and scholarship are due to the mentoring of Michael’s faculty and his scholarly accomplishments and evidence of interest in Japan,” commented Nan M. Sussman, Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences.
