Four juniors from Stanford University have been selected as Truman Scholars by a foundation that recognizes students in the field of public service.
The juniors are among 60 students from colleges and universities across the country to be chosen for the scholarship, school officials said. The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation will provide up to $30,000 for graduate study to the selected students. The foundation chooses scholars based on their leadership potential and commitment to public service.
With four students selected, Stanford University boasts the largest number of scholars chosen from one school, university officials said. The Stanford University students chosen are Ishan Nath, Teryn Norris, Tenzin Seldon and Michael Tubbs.
The students' majors cover a wide spectrum within the field of public service including environmental studies, public policy, and race and ethnicity studies.
