Marwa Eltagouri of Grand Island, a magazine journalism major in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and political science major in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University, has been selected as one of 35 students to be a Remembrance Scholar.

The $5,000 scholarships were founded as a tribute to - and means of remembering - the 35 Syracuse University students who were killed in the Dec. 21, 1988, bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The students, who were returning from a semester of study in London and Florence, were among 270 people who perished in the bombing. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.

Remembrance Scholars, who are chosen in their junior year, write three essays as part of a comprehensive application, and finalists are interviewed by members of the selection committee, composed of university faculty, staff and students.

The 2013-14 Remembrance Scholars were recognized during a convocation Friday in Hendricks Chapel on the campus.
