PRINCETON, N.J., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Caliper Corporation, a leading human capital management assessment and development firm, today announced that Ariel Karten is the first recipient of The Dr. Herbert Greenberg Scholarship for a promising student attending City College of New York (CCNY). The scholarship, given annually, recognizes students who demonstrate academic achievement and a strong motivation to succeed.
Caliper established the scholarship to honor Dr. Greenberg, founder and CEO of the firm, on the occasion of the company's fiftieth anniversary last year. Dr. Greenberg received both his bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology from CCNY, and became a member of Phi Beta Kappa during his undergraduate years. He eventually earned a Ph.D. with highest honors in human relations and psychology from New York University. Later, he developed the Caliper Profile, a workplace personality assessment which has uncovered the potential of 3.5 million job applicants and employees from around the world.
"Even before Caliper was a glint in my eye, I had the privilege of attending CCNY," said Dr. Greenberg. "The college offered me a tuition-free opportunity, and I got the best education I could ever have dreamed of receiving. It's gratifying to help current students enjoy the same opportunity," he said.
To fulfill his desire to give back to CCNY on more than one level, Greenberg and his Caliper colleagues are helping to develop the athletes on the school's basketball team, and make each of them a top performer. A Caliper 'Campus to Career' program helps players and their coaches to "play to their strengths," with the help of insights from the Caliper Profile. Athletes also have the chance to do some intensive career exploration, finding their "second love" off the basketball court.
"The scholarship from Caliper will help me to continue fulfilling my goals and aspirations," said Ariel Karten, a sophomore at CCNY, majoring in biology and psychology. "CCNY is dedicated to giving everyone the chance to achieve success through education, regardless of their circumstances. I am honored to be recognized in this way."
