It is a rare award for students — with it only happening twice for New College students — in 1995 and 1998 — for what’s deemed a “prestigious designation,” according to the college.
Isabella Cibelli DuTerroil and Alana Swartz are this year’s recipients.
“They will receive funding to study a critical language—Turkish and Japanese, respectively—and work for at least one year in the public service field, in government positions critical to United States national security,” the school said in a news release.
“Boren visited our campus in the fall to intentionally recruit from New College, going into classrooms and doing information sessions. They reached out directly to us,” said Dwayne Peterson, the director of New College’s Center for Career Engagement and Opportunity. “They’re familiar with our academic program and they targeted us, which really shows the strength of our academic program.”
Allie Maass and Florence Zamsky served as New College’s Boren advisers.
