Pitzer College Student Wins Kemper Scholarship

Claremont, Calif. (April 27, 2012) — Pitzer College student Alexander Rosario '15 has been named a Kemper Scholar by the James S. Kemper Foundation.

Rosario plans to design his own media and communications major and later pursue a career in advertising or publicity. Rosario says the Kemper scholarship is distinguished by "the program's goal to promote an invaluable liberal arts education while providing real world experience to its recipients."

"This organization's fundamental philosophy guarantees my preparation for a career in the business realm prior to graduating with a bachelor's degree," Rosario said.

The Kemper Scholars program prepares students for leadership and service, aiming to promote education in the liberal arts while providing students with opportunities for career exploration and practical experience. One scholar is chosen from the first year class of 16 selective liberal arts colleges nationwide.

Kemper Scholars receive annual scholarships of up to $10,000 during their sophomore, junior and senior years. They can also receive stipends to cover the costs of participating in summer internships following their sophomore and junior years.

Rosario joins Pitzer's other three Kemper Scholars: Christopher Thomas '12, Kari Todd '13, and Leonardo Flores '14.
