Rider University
Major: Biology

Through two ICFNJ-administered research awards, O Aung has learned how to apply information gleaned from classroom lectures to real-life issues. At Rider University, he met his research advisor and designed his first independent research project. The aspiring doctor says, “These scholarships gave me a chance to design my own experiment, analyze the outcome and interpret what occurred. It gave me a deep appreciation of how complex and fascinating science can be and taught me that I am capable of achieving the goals that I set for myself.”
