Calvano is the 2011 recipient of Lafayette’s Caine Scholars Award for Global Leadership, Business, and Policy. The award, which is the first specifically created for policy studies majors, provides a $5,000 stipend to support a summer internship.
“What I love about working at AMR is I am involved with a project from start to finish, and I get to participate in everything from research, to data analysis, presentation building, and client meetings/presentations,” says Calvano (Eastampton, N.J.), a double major in economics and policy studies. “Not every project is in the same industry, so I get to apply my knowledge of economics, policy, and strategy across all types of sectors and situations.”
Calvano has spent most of his Lafayette career thinking globally through research, community service, and study abroad.
