Brendan Hayes '04 is one of 12 2008 George J. Mitchell Scholars named by the U.S.-Ireland Alliance. Awarded annually, the scholarships allow Americans to pursue a year of post-graduate study at any university on the island of Ireland.

Hayes has spent the last year and a half living in Swaziland, first as a Peace Corps volunteer and then with the Swazi National AIDS council, helping to run an organization that works with AIDS orphans. Through the Mitchell Scholarship, Hayes will will seek a master's degree in development studies at University College Dublin.

A Tupper Lake, NY, native, Hayes earned his St. Lawrence degree in history and biology, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa. He was a member of the football team and participated in a spring break trip with Habitat for Humanity.

The U.S.-Ireland Alliance is a "proactive, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to consolidating existing relations between the United States and Ireland -- North and South -- and building that relationship for the future."
