We would like to congratulate Senior Neuroscience Major Jennifer Li on being awarded the Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars.

The Merrill Presidential Scholars Program honors the University of Maryland’s most successful seniors and their designated University faculty and K-12 teachers for their mentorship. As a University community, we honor the Merrill Scholars and their mentors in a special ceremony and bring teachers and faculty together in a workshop that leads to stronger collaboration between the University and K-12 schools.

"Without my mentors’ encouragement and belief in me and my goals, I would not be where I am today, and I am so grateful for this opportunity to express my gratitude to each of them." -Jennifer Li
