Classical Archaeology major Nathan Carmichael awarded Presidential Scholarship
Posted: May 16, 2013
Congratulations to sophomore Nathan Carmichael, who has received an Unrestricted Endowed Presidential Scholarship (UEPS) for academic year 2013-14. Nathan was the Classics Department's sole nominee for this award, which the President confers to a select group of outstanding undergraduates across the University each spring. Majoring in Classical Archaeology and Anthropology, he has demonstrated academic excellence and an unusually precocious interest in pursuing classical archaeology as a career. Among his other distinctions, he has just completed an Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship in which he produced digital maps for an academic book project on the urban history of Rome, and he received a Gareth Morgan Scholarship to enroll in the department's storied summer intensive Greek program. Last summer he participated in UT's excavations at the synagogue in Ostia (see accompanying illustration).
We also offer our warmest congratulations to Jorge Wong, majoring in Classics and German, who also won a UEPS as a nominee of the German Department.
