Ungraduate Tomas Green finalist for Truman Scholarship

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Undergraduate Tomas Green was one of two University of Kansas students named finalists for prestigious Harry S. Truman Scholarships. These scholarships provide up to $30,000 for graduate study.  Winners must show a strong track record of campus and community service, a commitment to a career in government or nonprofit sectors, and a high probability of becoming a “change agent.” 

Green’s research at CEBC, involvement with Student Senate, and off-campus work with the Willow Domestic Violence Center and the Citizens Climate Lobby make him a strong candidate for this award. Approximately 60 scholarships—out of more than 750 applications—will be awarded in late April.
