Adam Cohen, a junior at the University of Pennsylvania, has been awarded a Harry S. Truman Scholarship, a merit-based award for college students who plan to pursue careers in government or in public service, wish to attend graduate or professional school to help prepare for their careers and are U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals. He is among 60 students awarded Truman Scholarships this year and is the 22nd Truman Scholar from Penn since 1981.

Cohen’s work at Penn’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships has helped improve post-secondary success initiatives in West Philadelphia public high schools.  He has worked with Netter affiliated faculty members to develop and coordinate three college-access programs that serve high school juniors and seniors and has also contributed to improving Penn’s Academically Based Community Service program.
