AARON RABINOWITZ '03 WINS PRESTIGIOUS MITCHELL SCHOLARSHIP
Haverford College alumnus Aaron Rabinowitz has been selected as one of 12 nationwide recipients of the 2005-2006 George J. Mitchell Scholarship. A 2003 graduate, Aaron was chosen from 220 applicants representing 166 colleges and universities. He will study economics at the National University of Ireland in Galway.
At Haverford, Aaron majored in economics and was captain of the baseball team. He began aspiring to a career in health policy after witnessing the stark differences between the patient care his younger brother received during a heart transplant and his undergraduate experiences traveling to Cuba with the College's baseball team. Today, Aaron remains active in spreading awareness of the need for organ donation among college students. He currently works for Charles River Associates, a Washington, D.C., consulting firm, conducting economic analyses of antitrust cases.
Launched in 1998 with an endowment from the Government of Ireland, the Mitchell Scholarship recognizes outstanding young Americans who exhibit the highest standards of academic excellence, leadership, and community service. The Scholarship, administered by the US-Ireland Alliance, is named in honor of the pivotal role the former U.S. Senator from Maine played in the Northern Ireland peace process.
