Two students from Temple University’s Fox School of Business received merit scholarships by Aflac based upon their stellar performances during summer internships with the insurance company.
Junior International Business major Maria Blaszczyk finished No. 2 in the United States among collegiate interns within Aflac’s program. She earned a $3,000 scholarship and a trip to Aflac’s corporate headquarters in Columbus, Ga., to meet with Aflac executives and to tour the Aflac campus. Senior Marketing major Elliot Astor, who finished No. 1 in the Northeast Region, earned a $2,000 scholarship.
The Elevate 2015 Aflac Intern contest, in its second year, awards scholarships to eight college-age interns from a pool of 365 students who interned for the company.
Requirements for the scholarship, among others, include ranking among the best in sales and acquisitions.
“Maria and Elliot have exemplified what it means to be great interns with a Fortune 500 Company,” said Matthew O’Hanlon, District Coordinator of Aflac’s Philadelphia Region. “This demonstrates why the Fox School of Business is such an elite business school, and it is with great pleasure that we honor these students.”
