Jennifer Harvey, Conrad Family MBET Scholarship Recipient

“My startup mentor once told me that if I don’t believe in my own idea then I cannot expect anyone else to believe in it. To me, this scholarship says that someone believes in me, and that is a huge source of motivation.”

Zhonghan Li, David Johnston International Experience Award Recipient

“With the great support of the David Johnston International Experience Award, I travelled to Shantou University Medical College in China.
