)-- The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) has awarded Andrew Adelman the NSCS Scholar Abroad Scholarship for the fall semester. Adelman, a junior in the Public Health and Development Studies programs, is spending the spring semester in Jordan.
“We read hundreds of applications throughout the year, and Andrew’s truly stood out in the group,” said Stephen E. Loflin, NSCS’ executive director. “His answers were focused and specific and outlined how his study abroad program would enhance his major and future career. We are proud to help him represent the Berkeley community, NSCS and the United States, overseas.”
On campus, Adelman is an involved member of the student government, an active participant at the local Habitat for Humanity chapter, and a trombonist for the University Wind Ensemble.
The Scholar Abroad Scholarship is presented to one outstanding NSCS member each semester to help the student with his or her study abroad experience. NSCS gives $5,000 in the spring and fall semesters, and $2,500 in the summer.
