It’s three years in a row now that the University of New Mexico can proudly say it has a Truman Scholar.

For 2023, that incredibly prestigious honor goes to senior and Honors College student Andrew Schumann. Schumann was selected as just one out of 62 total Truman Scholars nationwide, out of 705 candidates from 275 colleges and universities.

Truman Scholars like Schumann must demonstrate outstanding leadership potential, a commitment to a career in government or the nonprofit sector, and academic excellence, and go through evaluation by 17 regional selection panels. He will get funding for graduate studies, leadership training, career counseling, and special internship and fellowship opportunities within the federal government.

If it’s not impressive enough that he is earning his bachelor’s in both history and political science in a fast three years, Schumann has also already acquired six associate degrees from the CNM while he was in high school.
