Three Flinn Scholars Choose CHEE and Look Toward Giving Back

Dec. 14, 2018
Posted in:
Arizona Flinn scholars haven't graduated yet but they are already looking for ways to pay forward their good fortune.

Five Arizona Flinn scholars joined the College of Engineering in 2017. Three are students in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, and they are looking to use their education to give back -- to the Navajo Nation, disenfranchised populations and, indeed, the world.

Each year the Flinn Foundation provides about 20 of Arizona’s highest achieving high school seniors with full scholarships, including study abroad, for four years of undergraduate study at one of Arizona’s three public universities.

"CHEE is proud to have a rigorous and supportive academic culture that attracts some of the most academically talented students at the UA," said Anthony Muscat, professor and department chair. "Nizhonabah, Amanda and Stanley bring intellectual distinction to our department."

A doctor can help a few thousand people in a lifetime. An engineer can help millions with one project.”
