Kevin Hulick and Mario Sracic

Two YSU students have been nominated as candidates for the prestigious Marshall Scholarship by Youngstown State University.

Senior Kevin Hulick (left) of Austintown is a double political science and economics major with a minor in philosophy. He is a recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship and various competitive scholarship awards in his fields, and he’s also won national awards for his performances and written briefs for moot court competitions.

Mario Sracic of Hermitage, Pa., is a senior mathematics major with a dual minor in computer science and statistics. A member of the Leslie H. Cochran University Scholars Program and the YSU Honors Program, he’s won regional and national awards for mathematics competitions. Sracic also completed a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Kansas State University this summer.

Both application packets were endorsed by the university after an academic review. They will now be judged for the interview round of the Chicago regional portion of the contest. They’ll find out if they qualify in November.

Marshall Scholarships finance up to 40 high-achieving Americans each year to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Their purpose is to strengthen relations between the two countries and enhance the intellectual growth of each Scholar.
