“The Grand Challenges Scholars Program was the cohesive element to my undergraduate experience. I entered college with plans to do many things: start an engineering outreach club, study abroad, conduct regenerative medicine research, and work in the healthcare industry. There was a lot to tackle. Joining the Grand Challenges Scholars Program tied my college story together while still encouraging diverse types of experiences.”
