North Trail's New College Names First Archimedes Scholars

Posted by ntadmin in Scholarship , North Trail , New College

The scholarship program provides a $10,000 scholarship annually to a New College student and a $5,000 scholarship yearly to two graduates of high schools in Sarasota or Manatee counties.

New College of Florida has awarded its first Archimedes Scholarship to Saurav Kiri, a graduate of Pine View School who will be attending New College this fall. He will receive an annual $10,000 scholarship and intends to study biology or biochemistry. Kiri, who is planning a career as a physician researcher, wrote in his scholarship application essay that he chose to attend New College because it “will prepare me for the challenges of medical school and the practice of medicine and medical research itself.”

Sarasota philanthropists Andrew and Judith Economos established the Archimedes Scholars Program with a $500,000 gift and selected New College to administer the award earlier this year. The scholarship program, named after the Greek mathematician and scientist, provides a $10,000 scholarship annually to a New College student and a $5,000 scholarship yearly to two graduates of high schools in Sarasota or Manatee County pursuing studies in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) field.

Kevin Zhu, also a Pineview High School graduate, and Griffin Heckler, a graduate of Manatee High School, will receive annual $5,000 scholarships from the Archimedes Scholars Program. Zhu plans to study biotechnology at the University of Toronto with the goal of someday starting his own biotech firm. Heckler intends to study neuroscience at the University of Florida and has her sights set on a career in research or therapy.

North Trail's Cross College Alliance Adds 66 New Faculty

Universities exist both to create knowledge and to pass the knowledge won by previous generations to the rising generation. They exist for their students. And, in a very real sense, a university’s students and graduates embody that institution. They physically represent what that university produces.  But a university’s faculty is the institution’s soul.

Students graduate. But it is not uncommon for faculty members to serve 30 or 40 years. Collectively, they determine the nature of an institution: how welcoming it is, how innovative, how rigorous, and how outward facing.

There are few jobs as interesting, or as all-consuming, as full-time faculty positions at institutions that value teaching. The best faculty members love their disciplines and they love teaching. To love a discipline means to practice it, to advance knowledge in that discipline, and to contribute to that discipline. That is a full-time job. To love to teach means to care about students, to be able to motivate and encourage each student and to adjust to the different ways in which each individual student learns. That, too, is a full-time job. A typical professor views holidays, when the university is not in session, as an opportunity to do research in labs or in the field or in archives.
