Nashua Resident Receives Stemler Study Abroad Scholarship from Alpha Lambda Delta

MANCHESTER, N.H. (August 5, 2022) – Andras Bencze, a Nashua, N.H. resident and rising sophomore at Saint Anselm College, received the Stemler Study Abroad Scholarship from Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) in the amount of $1,000 for the 2022-23 academic year for his time abroad in Luneburg, Germany this summer.

Alpha Lambda Delta, a national honor society for first-year undergraduate students of which Bencze is a member, selects only 20 students across the country annually to receive this fellowship. To be considered, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and participate in ALD activities as well as campus and community service activities.

Bencze, a biochemistry and German studies double major, is involved in several activities on campus. He is a member of the Saint Anselm Club Ultimate Frisbee Team, the Saint Anselm Chemistry club, and is a peer tutor for biology and German courses through the Academic Resource Center (ARC).

This summer, Bencze was given the opportunity to live with three other German students in an apartment. He is taking an advanced German course at Leuphana University in Luneburg, Germany that he can transfer for credit towards his major at Saint Anselm. In his free time, he also joined an ultimate frisbee club in Luneburg and hopes to share some of the skills he has learned from the team with the Saint Anselm Ultimate Frisbee Team when he returns in the fall.
