We are happy to announce that a student from the MS in Translation & Interpreting (MSTI), Benjamin Frey, has been named an NYU SPS Dean’s Graduate Scholar for the upcoming academic year.
The NYU SPS Dean’s Graduate Scholars Program brings together high-performing students from across the school who exemplify academic excellence and service to the community. Following a competitive selection process, students were chosen for the 2021-2022 cohort, receiving a $10,000 scholarship for the academic year. Throughout the school year, Dean’s Scholars serve as exceptional school ambassadors, participating in admissions events and community-building activities. Perhaps the most important aspect of being a Dean’s Scholar is serving as a mentor to high school students from underrepresented communities in the New York metro area who will be the first in their family to attend college. During the summer and throughout the academic year, the Dean’s Scholars form meaningful relationships with their mentees through a series of social activities, college knowledge workshops, and virtual touch points. Ultimately, Dean’s Scholars serve as advocates, coaches, and role models, assisting their mentees in achieving their college goals and aspirations.
Join us in congratulating Ben! For more on Ben's success in the MSTI program, check out an interview with him here.
