Pierre Joseph ’15 won $30,000 to go toward graduate school through the Truman Scholarship. The Truman Scholarship, created in 1975, aims to “support young Americans who are making a difference and become part of the future of public service leadership,” the Truman Scholarship website says.

“Truman is for people who want to do domestic work,” Joseph said. “They are looking to invest 30,000 dollars and this big network in people who will be doing things here.”
