Two seniors who graduated in May earned Fulbright English Teaching Assistant awards. Juniors Grace Conway, Arjun Jaini, and Andrew Levorse were selected as prestigious Goldwater Scholars — recognizing outstanding students who wish to pursue careers in the natural sciences, mathematics and engineering. And Megan Higgins, a junior, earned a U.S. Department of State Critical Language Scholarship to study Chinese in Taiwan during the summer of 2017. ️
