Deana Glick, a junior in the UAA University Honors College majoring in biological sciences, has been awarded a highly competitive and prestigious Truman Scholarship. Selections were announced on Thursday by Madeline K. Albright, former Secretary of State and president of the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation.
Glick is one of only 60 scholars named from 601 candidates nominated by 289 colleges and universities. She was selected "on the basis of exceptional leadership potential, intellectual ability and likelihood of 'making a difference.'" This is the fourth year in a row that a UAA University Honors College student has won a Truman Scholarship. Each scholarship provides up to $30,000 in support of graduate study.
