Boster Scholarship Recipients 2020

Celine D. Nguyen

B.S. Biochemistry and Cell Biology Major - Rice University Class of 2022 - Rice Alliance for Mental Health Awareness College Representative

"Congratulations to Celine Nyugen for receiving the Boster Scholarship of 2020. On behalf of the scholarship committee, I have to admit that this was a difficult choice as there are so many glaring applications from candidates who are, without a doubt, exceptional individuals. 

Most candidates have demonstrated amazing characters and aspirations in their applications. Celine, however, stood out from her peers with her actions. The amount of academic research and medical/psychiatry shadowing she has done is impressive for someone who just graduated from highschool. The glaring recommendations from the colleagues she has worked with drew us a vivid personna imagery of talent, grit and maturity. All these merits suggest that Celine will likely achieve her goals in life, in addition to talking about them passionately. We are glad to have witnessed her achievements in life. We are honored to get the chance to propel her trajectory, even though just by a little bit. 

Again, congratulations to Celine and best luck to her pursuit at RICE University. "
