Student Stories



Alice Ma ’13 MPH, ’17 PhD

“This opportunity has been indispensable. It provided a much-needed avenue of research to public health education. If we can reframe how we think about vulnerable groups – how groups are uniquely vulnerable – we can develop better interventions.”

Recipient of the Ron G. Morrow Graduate Research Award


Leeroy Maguraushe ’18

Leeroy describes the Hoyle/Kelly Scholarship as “life-changing.” It allowed him to receive a quality education, play at the highest level of his sport, and graduate in time for the January 2019 Major League Soccer draft.

Fabiola Minerali

“As designers, our main focus is not what we create but the people who engage with our creations. I want my designs to impact people. Life after graduation still seems far away, so my plans are unclear. But I found what I value as a designer, and I can build my career around that.”

Recipient of the Khan International Students Scholarship
