Diego Sandoval Receives UK Summer Fulbright Fellowship

Junior Scholar Diego Sandoval (Bioengineering) is the Powell Scholars Program's first ever recipient of a UK Summer Fulbright Fellowship. This is a three-to-four week program for US undergraduate students that gives students the opportunity to explore the United Kingdom while pursuing higher education at a UK university.

Diego will participate in a three-week summer program on technology, innovation, and creativity in Scotland, studying at the University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art. This is one of the most prestigious and selective summer scholarship programs worldwide.

I am very grateful to have the opportunity to travel to Scotland and learn about its culture of innovation. As a Fulbright summer programme participant, I will have the chance to explore Scotland, learn about its cultural heritage, and experience higher education at two of the UK’s leading universities. By participating, I hope to gain a deeper appreciation for Scottish culture and return with a renewed sense of determination to continue pursuing a career in innovation as a patent attorney. I also hope to take advantage of this opportunity to determine if I may be interested in pursuing a graduate-level Fulbright Award at some point in the future.

In this eight week program I’ll be attending intensive classes five days a week, earning eight academic units. I will be one of three students from Pacific going for Arabic. SIS [School of International Studies] is funding my tuition and part of housing. I am very grateful to have been accepted and for SIS’ financial support! I hope to use the skills I’ll gain this summer while studying abroad in Jordan my third year, and eventually maybe working in the Middle East post-grad.
