Christine Le ‘23 selected as a Goldwater Scholar

From an estimated pool of over 5,000 college sophomores and juniors, Christine Le ‘23 has been selected as a Goldwater Scholar. The Goldwater Scholarship fosters outstanding students in their sophomore and junior year to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Many of the scholars have published their research in leading professional journals and have presented their work at professional society conferences.

Le is the 23rd Brandeis undergraduate student to have earned this distinction since 1989, and is the fifth in the last nine years. A junior majoring in biology and neuroscience with a minor in hispanic studies, she has been an active member of professor Guillermina Ramirez-San Juan's lab since the summer 2020, working at the interface of physics and biology. Le intends to earn a PhD in Cellular and Developmental Biology, conduct research in developmental biology, and teach at the university level.

The Office of Academic Fellowships assists Brandeis students in applying for prestigious fellowships and scholarships, such as the Goldwater Scholarship.
