Economics Graduate Student Awarded Phi Sigma Kappa Fellowship May 29, 2013Economics student Alan Hooper '12 took first place in Phi Sigma Kappa's national competition for the $10,000 Terrill Graduate Fellowship. Alan graduated from Clemson summa cum laude in May of 2012, first in his class of over 2200 graduating seniors. In winning the scholarship, he beat an MIT Physics major for the top spot. Alan will use the Terrill Fellowship to continue his studies in microeconomic theory and the history of economic thought.
Alan has been involved in Clemson's Phi Sigma Kappa chapter serving as scholarship chair. In his role he helped improved academic expectations for chapter members as well as revising the organization's by-laws. If not dedicating time to his studies or fraternity, Alan makes time for other charitable events in support of the community.
