Anderson receives scholarship

Katie Anderson of Detroit Lakes has been awarded a $40,000 John A. Paulson scholarship from the Stern School of Business at New York University.

In the letter from Mr. Paulson notifying her of the award, he told Katie she’s among “a very small, select group of students who have demonstrated extraordinary academic achievement combined with significant and unique life experiences.”

In addition to the Paulson award, Katie also got a $15,000 scholarship from Stern.

John Paulson is the founder and president of Paulson & Company, a New York-based hedge fund. Between 2009 and 2011 Paulson made several charitable donations, including $20 million to the Stern School of Business.

Katie Anderson plans to attend NYU this fall and major in statistics. She is the daughter of Darrell and Maureen Anderson.
