The Scholars

Now in our third year, we have continued to welcome University Scholars to Northeastern from all over the world. Currently, Northeastern University Scholars come to us from over 37 countries and 34 of the United States. They are a tremendous group of students who have already begun making deep impacts on our campus. Their thirst to explore, to be challenged, to pursue unique paths, and to give back to the communities they touch guides us as we continue to shape the future of the University Scholars Program at Northeastern. Here, you will find some information about the current crop of University Scholars, as well as more detailed profiles of our young leaders and thinkers.
