Our Richter Scholars

A classroom in Latin America

The Paul K. and Evalyn E. Cook Richter Trust generously funds summer research virtually anywhere in the world, across all disciplines, for 8 to 10 weeks.



In fall of 2019, we honored study abroad students who demonstrated independence, initiative, creativity and scholarship in a demanding international setting. These attributes are consistent with the principles of Occidental's Richter Scholars program and have earned them a place in the ranks of exceptional Tigers dating back to the 1960's.
