Diego Atehortua is currently a junior majoring in Art History. Diego is the first Rutgers student to win a Beinecke Scholarship, and one of only 20 students in the United States to receive one this year.
The Beinecke scholarship is a program of the Sperry Fund and provides substantial scholarships for the graduate education of young men and women of exceptional promise. Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school.
Congratulations to Diego!
