Congratulation to our 2023 Scholarship Recipients.

Joshua Kwon

Joshua is off to the University of Pennsylvania studying to be a mechanical engineer with a minor in aerospace engineering where he will focus on aerodynamics and thermodynamics. Joshua attends Union High School and is Co-president of the Interact Club. He too has a passion for STEM and worked to bring STEM Academy to underprivileged communities in hopes of igniting interest in the younger generation for the sciences through hands-on experiments. In June of 2022, Joshua participated in a highly selective (8%) summer research program at the Joint Science Technology Institute- West (JSTI) fully funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency of the United States government and the Oak Ridge Associated Universities where he worked with doctors, professors, and students from all across the country in partnership with the Los Alamos National Laboratory and La Sandia National Laboratory using CAD knowledge to design 3D models to assemble a working solar thermal and solar electric heating system under the guidance of an engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Their research was published on the Oak Ridge Institute of Science, an education website for educators and researchers to access.

Jean Lin

Vanessa will be attending the University of Notra Dame this fall.

Mohammad will be attending Northwestern University pursuing a mechanical engineering degree. He attended Union High School where he is Cofounder and Copresident of Black Student Union, an organization with the goal of educating an empowering black culture for all students. His passion for STEM lead him to STEM Academy which creates and presents science –based experiments at local elementary schools exposing kids to STEM in an enjoyable way so they can learn and feel more comfortable pursuing STEM in the future.
