Gates Cambridge Scholarship
Margaret Carpenter (Music, 2011) is among 30 American students who entered the University of Cambridge in England as a 2011 Gates Cambridge Scholars. She is the first UNCG student to be selected for the award, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. A senior from Charlotte, Margaret will pursue a Master of Music degree in choral studies at the prestigious university, which is the second oldest in the English-speaking world.
Zimuzor Ugochukwu (Biology 2011) is the first UNCG student to win the prestigious Luce Scholarship. She is spending the 2011-12 year in India under the sponsorship of this fellowship.
The Luce Scholars Program provides stipends, language training, and individualized professional placement in Asia for 15-18 scholars each year, and welcomes applications from college seniors, graduate students and young professionals in a variety of fields who have had limited exposure to Asia.
Ugochukwu's road to a Luce fellowship was not an easy one. Only 75 U.S. universities - institutions such as Harvard, Princeton and Yale - can nominate applicants for Luce Scholars, and each has three nominating slots per year. Since UNCG is not a Luce-nominating institution, Ugochukwu sought several other options before Williams College in Massachusetts agreed to nominate her.
