Global Studies and Geography Major, Alishbah Saddiqui Wins the 2018-19 Inaba Scholarship

The Global Studies and Geography Department is pleased to announce that Alishbah Saddiqui is the 2018 recipient of the Masaharu G. Inaba Endowed Memorial Scholarship.

Alishbah is a rising third year student who came to the U.S. from Pakistan with her family when she was just two years old.  English is her fourth language and she speaks a total of six languages: English, Urdu, French, Punjabi, Arabic and Hindi. She initially majored in Biology with the intention of becoming a doctor, but soon realized this was not the path for her and changed to a triple major in Global Studies, Geography and Political Science, along with a minor in English.  Along the way she fell in love with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and hopes to use these skills working in international relations to pursue her passion for humanitarian intervention, human rights and global justice.

Donated by the Inaba family in memory of the late Dr. George Inaba, who taught geography at Hofstra from 1959 to 1983, this scholarship award amount ranges between $6,000 and $7,000. It is awarded annually to Global Studies and Geography majors and is in addition to any other financial awards that a student receives.
