Neelesh Dewan, a senior biology major from Mint Hill, was selected as a UNC-Chapel Hill Phillips Ambassador this spring. Dewan studied abroad this summer with the UNC Summer in India program in New Delhi.
The Phillips Ambassadors scholarship program is designed to broaden awareness of Asia on and off campus. The scholarship combines an award for study in Asia with an academic course that challenges students to share their experiences..
Phillips Ambassadors are chosen twice each year. Recipients are selected based on their academic achievement and commitment to activities, service and leadership roles in the classroom and community.
