A Great Year for Scholarships

June 5, 2013

The 2012–2013 academic year saw an exciting number of University of Minnesota students—many of them in the University Honors Program—winning nationally and internationally competitive scholarships. Among the most prestigious scholarships awarded to UHP students this year were the Harry S. Truman Scholarship and Udall Scholarship—congratulations, everyone!

UHP students Bradley Conley (Truman finalist), Marissa Kramer (Gilman and Udall winner), and Katrina Klett (Truman and Udall winner) celebrate at a reception in honor of finalists and winners of nationally & internationally competitive scholarships, held at the Campus Club on April 24th.
