More than 30 business transfer students were chosen to receive the Robert B. Willumstad Transfer Business Award.
“Money makes the world go around,” according to song lyrics in the Broadway musical Cabaret. Money—in the form of transfer scholarships—also provides a considerable assist for transfers enrolled in the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business.
The most recent addition to the bundle of transfer scholarship dollars for business students is the Robert B. Willumstad Transfer Business Award.
More than 30 business transfer students were chosen to receive that award, said Sheryl Mihopulos, assistant vice president, Office of Student Financial Services. Each of these students will receive $1,000 a year toward their tuition, with the scholarship also applicable toward their M.B.A., she said.
Elijah Shabazz, Brian Thompson, Lawrence Nicolas and Nathalie Horta are among the first 30 award recipients, each on his or her own career path. Shabazz and Thompson, for instance, are Nassau Community College transfers—the former a finance major on the Panthers lacrosse team and the latter a business management major—while Nicolas transferred from Queensborough Community College to major in business administration and Horta is an accounting major who came from Suffolk County Community College as a 2014 Stay on Long Island Initiative recipient.
All are Spring 2014 admitted transfers who declared a business major and are attending Adelphi’s Willumstad School full time as of the Fall 2014 semester. The scholarship—which can be applied toward their M.B.A., if they continue immediately after obtaining their bachelor’s degree— was announced in the Fall 2013 Transfer Students Newsletter.
