Graduate student Joseph Mullin was recently named a winner of a prestigious scholarship granted to students who demonstrate superior academic performance, community service, personal accomplishments and financial need.
Mullin is one of six students statewide, and one of two from the Bay Area, to receive the 2002/03 William R. Hearst/CSU Trustees' Award for Outstanding Achievement. He will receive the $3,000 scholarship at the July meeting of the CSU Board of Trustees.
With four years of experience on the volunteer treatment hotline of Project Inform, Mullin is also a volunteer assistant librarian in treatment libraries at the AIDS Action Committee in Boston and Healing Alternatives Foundation in San Francisco. In addition, Mullin serves on the Medical Advisory Committee for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program of the statewide Office of AIDS.
After Mullin completes his master's degree in history, he will pursue a doctorate in cultural or American studies and focus his work on the history of discrimination. Ultimately, he would like to teach at a university and continue his community activism.
