HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Nathan Anderson-Stahl, a senior from Camp Hill, Pa., studying mathematics has been chosen to receive the prestigious Andrew Mutch Scholarship from the St. Andrews Society of Philadelphia. He will attend the University of St. Andrews in the 2015-2016 academic year.
Anderson-Stahl is the son of Elizabeth Anderson and David Stahl, of Camp Hill. He is a 2013 graduate of Camp Hill High School.
Anderson-Stahl previously studied abroad for a summer seminar at the Center for Critical Thinking in Koszeg, Hungary in 2014.
Anderson-Stahl remains active on campus. He is a member of the Null Set, the student mathematics club, and runs the Divest Juniata campaign on campus. He also is a member of Pi Mu Epsilon, the national honor society for mathematics.
The college has always been extremely flexible in allowing me to explore various academic interests. Education should always be seen as an lifelong endeavor. It's never static. I believe you should always be striving new knowledge and experiences. I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue my educational journey in Scotland."
"Juniata has made a commitment to the liberal arts and study abroad is an important component to an education with breadth," Anderson-Stahl says. "The college has always been extremely flexible in allowing me to explore various academic interests. Education should always be seen as an lifelong endeavor. It's never static. I believe you should always be striving new knowledge and experiences. I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue my educational journey in Scotland."
Only five students from 19 participating colleges and universities in and around Philadelphia are selected to attend one of the five participating universities in Scotland for one year. Anderson-Stahl is the 22nd Juniata College student to receive this prestigious award since Juniata's affiliation with the program in 1979.
To be considered for the scholarship, a student must first be in the top fifth of the sophomore class. The candidate then completes an application and interviews with the president, provost, dean of international programs, international education committee, and the scholarship committee. From these interviews, each institution selects one candidate who then travels to Philadelphia to compete for one of the five scholarships.
Anderson-Stahl will take classes on sustainable development at St. Andrews University.
