Undergrads win major awards

For the second consecutive year, Pitt students are winners in all three of the prestigious national congressional commemorative undergraduate scholarship competitions — the Harry S. Truman, Barry M. Goldwater and Morris K. Udall scholarships — joining Yale and Cornell as the only universities with student winners of all three scholarships in both 2004 and 2005.

The 2005 Pitt winners are:

• Daniel Armanios, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering and political science, who was named a 2005 Truman Scholar for his outstanding scholarship and leadership.

• Marion Sikora, a junior with a dual major in geology and planetary science and environmental studies, who was named a 2005 Udall Scholar for exemplary leadership and scholarship potentially leading to an environmental career.

• Justin Chalker, a junior majoring in chemistry and in the history and philosophy of science; Anna Quider, a sophomore majoring in physics and astronomy and in the history and philosophy of science, and Daliang Li, a junior majoring in electrical engineering, who were named 2005 Goldwater Scholars for their exceptional independent research in science and engineering disciplines.

“It is especially gratifying that Pitt students have again won all three of these scholarships,” said Alec Stewart, Pitt Honors College dean and faculty representative for the Goldwater, Truman and Udall scholarships. “These accolades represent comprehensive undergraduate leadership attainment in government and public service through the Truman, in environmental policy though the Udall, and in science and engineering research through the Goldwater.”
