Anjie Bertramson Anjie Bertramson was selected by Washington State University for the January 2018 Crimson Spirit Award.

The Crimson Spirit Award is a monthly recognition award for individual employees who provided exceptional service and exceeded expectations while representing WSU either internally or externally. Bertramson was recognized for outstanding contributions to the WSU community.

Bertramson just joined the College of Pharmacy as the new Director of Experiential Services. Prior to that she served as lead advisor and faculty-led coordinator within the Office of International Programs at WSU in Pullman for six years. Her nomination recognizes her stellar work in International Programs.

According to the award announcement, her nominator praised her initiative with the First Generation Abroad program. Working with retention advisors in programs including First Scholars and Passport to College, Bertramson built a program that qualifies Pell-Grant-eligible students for the Gilman International Scholarship.

“In addition to ensuring the program met the scholarship requirements, Anjie and her colleagues created trainings to help students understand application requirements and reviewer priorities. These efforts helped many WSU students receive this award, resulting in thousands of dollars’ worth of scholarships and a year with one of the highest Gilman recipient numbers in WSU history,” the nomination said.
