Adam Wheeler, a former Harvard student was indicted Monday for falsifying information on applications for several scholarships as well as Harvard, according to the colleges newspaper, the Harvard Crimson.

While Wheeler, 23, was indicted for 20 counts of larceny, identity fraud, falsifying an endorsement for approval to the prestigious Rhodes and Fulbright Scholarships and pretending to hold a degree, he also claimed he gave lectures for the National Association of Armenian Studies and Research at Harvard such as From Parthia to Robin Hood: The Armenian Version of the Epic of the Blind Mans Son (Koroghlu) and The Rime of the Book of the Dove: Zoroastrian Cosmology, Armenian Heresiology and the Russian Novel. The claims appeared on a resume Wheeler sent to The New Republic magazine for an internship in their literary section.
