Fremd Graduate Wins Peace Scholarship


Byline: Michelle Martin

Fremd High School graduate Ankit Mehta wants peace, but what he got is a peace scholarship.

Mehta, who graduated from Fremd June 5, wrote an essay, titled "The Bonding Link Between Peace and Communications," that won first place in the National Peace Essay Contest sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace.

He'll receive a $1,000 college scholarship and will compete this week for national awards of up to $10,000.

This week, Mehta will represent the state of Illinois in a special USIP program in Washington, D.C. where he'll get to meet with top government and embassy officials, as well as people directly involved in the peace negotiations between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Mehta and the other state-award winners will also do a three-day negotiation simulation where they'll assume the roles of representatives from the Organization of African United and find a way to prevent more fighting between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

At the end of the week, winners of the first, second and third place scholarships of $10,000, $5,000 and $2,500, respectively, will be selected.

Mehta's interest in political science and social sciences were sparked through his involvement in the Junior Statesman Summer School at Stanford University. For the past four years, he has taken part in the Model United Nations conferences at the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Champagne.

He plans to attend the Illinois Institute of Technology in the fall.
