2 CAS graduates named USF Undergraduate Scholars

TAMPA, Fla. – Two College of Arts and Sciences graduates received the USF Undergraduate Scholar award at Saturday’s commencement ceremony.

Kelsey Adams and Zayar Khin were two of only four undergraduates to receive the USF Undergraduate Scholar award. Adams graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies and Khin received a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences.

To be considered for the USF Undergraduate Scholar award, students must complete all requirements including an integrated essay about their significant research, and global and community engagement experiences.

Penny Carlton, who coordinates the USF Undergraduate Scholars award for the USF Office of National Scholarships, said students are encouraged to build their profile to become Undergraduate Scholars starting their freshman year.

“There are many opportunities for outstanding students as early as freshman year to compete for merit scholarships to study or teach abroad as well as for graduate school,” Carlton said. “The USF Office of National Scholarships in collaboration with the Education Abroad Office, helps students identify study abroad programs and strengthen their applications to these prestigious scholarships.”
