Luscombe undergrad researcher David Coven receives Washington State Opportunity Scholarship, featured on King 5
This month the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship Program awarded scholarships to 800 freshman and sophomores who declared majors in science and engineering. Sponsored through a public-private partnership between Boeing, Microsoft, and the State of Washington, the scholarships are intended to encourage more students to enter the STEM fields and help fill the more than 25,000 technical jobs that remain unfilled in Washington State. UW freshman David Coven was interviewed by King 5 News on May 22 in the Molecular Engineering & Sciences lab of his research advisor Christine Luscombe.
