Syracuse iSchool undergraduate receives DrupalCon DC Scholarship

The School of Information Studies at Syracuse University is pleased to announce that undergraduate student Prameya Bhandari has received the DrupalCon DC 2009 Scholarship.

Bhandari, originally from Nepal and now a Syracuse, N.Y., resident, was one of 14 individuals to be awarded the DrupalCon DC scholarship for being a talented developer and an active member of the open source community. The scholarship will support his attendance at the DrupalCon in Washington, D.C., March 4 through 7, 2009.

Drupal is a free software package that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage, and organize a wide variety of content on a web site.

DrupalCon is the official Drupal conference that attracts the most talented open source developers and innovative web shops in the world and brings them together to share knowledge, make decisions on the future of Drupal, and get to know others.

Bhandari is working toward a B.S. in Information Management and Technology with minors in Psychology and Global Enterprise Technology. Bhandari has been hosting annual Syracuse University Drupal meet ups for the past two years and is planning on attending this year’s DrupalCon DC. He works part-time as a web developer and web designer to help support his studies.
