Annah Chollet and Camilo Duran, both C'21, have received Harry S. Truman Scholarships, a merit-based award of as much as $30,000 for graduate or professional school to prepare for careers in public service.

Chollet and Duran are among 62 Truman Scholars selected this year from 773 candidates nominated by 316 colleges and universities. They are the 28th and 29th Truman Scholars from Penn since the first awards in 1977. This is the third consecutive year that two Penn students have received the scholarship.

Chollet, from Boston, is pursuing a double major in gender, sexuality, and women’s studies and biological basis of behavior, with a concentration in health and disability, and a minor in chemistry. Duran, from Maiden, North Carolina, is pursuing a major in philosophy, politics, and economics with a concentration in public policy and governance, and a minor in urban studies.

The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation was created by Congress in 1975 to be the nation’s living memorial to President Truman. The foundation has a mission to select and support the next generation of public service leaders.
