SBS Announce 2010-2011 Magellan Circle Scholars

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at The University of Arizona is pleased to announce its 33 Magellan Circle Scholars for 2010-2011. These are undergraduate students who have exhibited financial need and/or academic excellence.

The Magellan Circle is a society for donors who contribute $1,000 a year or more to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The money raised goes to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence, which supports faculty and student research and teaching and research awards. Magellan Circle Patrons contribute an additional $500, which establishes a Magellan Circle Scholarship.

The Magellan Circle Scholars met their Patrons at the annual scholars’ breakfast on Dec. 9, 2010. Below is a list of the 2010-2011 Magellan Circle Scholars and their Patrons:
