Former Summer Student Receives Davidson Institute Fellowship
A Michigan teen who spent last summer working at NIEHS was named Davidson Institute Fellow.
John Zhou, 17, of Northville, received a $25,000 biology scholarship, according to the local Michigan newspaper and a story picked up by the Associated Press. The Davidson Institute for Talent Development is based in Reno, Nev. It is a nonprofit group that awards scholarships to gifted students across the country.
Zhou is a rising senior at Detroit Country Day High School in Beverly Hills. His interest in science stems from his childhood, the newspaper reported. His grandfather died of lung cancer and Zhou intends to pursue cancer research.
