David Barbier Jr. ’23 is a 2021 Ubben Posse Fellow
Honors junior, David Barbier Jr. ’23 was looking to explore more of his professional interest in television, radio and film and stretch himself in a challenging role. He found what he was searching for after applying and being named a 2021 Jeff Ubben Posse Fellow.
“After a tumultuous year of lockdown, I just wanted to continue to push myself to new heights,” Barbier says. Barbier, a Posse Scholar, is studying television, radio and film in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and international relations in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
Syracuse University partners with the Posse Foundation to admit high school students from Miami with extraordinary academic and leadership potential, providing a full-tuition Posse Leadership Scholarship. The Jeff Ubben Posse Fellows are leaders in their communities who have demonstrated academic excellence as Posse Scholars.
The award includes a $10,000 stipend and a summer internship, working closely with an industry leader.
