Congratulations to SHARP members Benjamin White and Stephanie Lin, who have been named UConn University Scholars for the class of 2017. According to the UConn website:

The University Scholar Program is one of the most prestigious programs for undergraduates at the University of Connecticut. Available to students from all of the University’s schools and colleges, the University Scholar Program allows students to design and pursue an in-depth research project and to craft an individualized plan of study that supports their intellectual interests during their final three semesters.

Graduating as a University Scholar is considered the highest academic achievement that UConn bestows on undergraduate students. No more than 30 University Scholars are selected each year.

You can see all the 2016 University Scholars here. Ben and Steph join Alyssa Zabin (class of 2016) as three current SHARP members with this honor.
