Chemical Engineering graduate Sean Burns (’13) was awarded the 2012 Steamboat Scholarship, a grant that is presented every year to a group of talented undergraduate students to provide them with the opportunity to live and learn while experiencing internship experiences.
Sean, while pursuing his chemical engineering degree at Northeastern, had the opportunity to spend twelve months in a drug discovery lab at Millennium Pharmaceuticals. He was also a Civic Engagement Program Scholar volunteering at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and tutoring local high school students at an urban youth enrichment program. Sean worked at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and has plans to attend medical school.
