Brown Fellows use their exceptional undergraduate experiences to develop their interests and prepare for careers that will change the world. Jessica Eaton (U of L ’13) traveled to Thailand, Nigeria, and India to work on public health projects as an undergraduate. Now in her third year of medical school, her research– recently presented at Research!Louisville– explores surgery in the context of global health, with the ultimate goal of using the data collected to find out which approaches work best.

Undergraduate Scholarship Program Administrators Association (USPAA) Scholar Summit

Katherine O'Nan and Chris Bird
In October, four Brown Fellows traveled to Omaha, NE, for the annual Undergraduate Scholarship Program Administrators Association (USPAA) Scholar Summit. Katherine O’Nan and Chris Bird (U of L ’18, pictured), Cesar Garcia (Centre ’18), and Imogene Robinson (Centre ’17) spent two days interacting with top students from across the country and learning about their experiences in other full-ride-plus programs. In addition to bringing back ideas to enrich the Brown Fellows Program and making connections with students and programs around the country, the Fellows also gained an appreciation for the unique opportunities that the program offers.
