Marshall Scholarship Interview

Tulane Senior Jonathan Bakke, with a perfect 4.0 GPA, dual majors in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics and a minor in Business, was invited to interview for a Marshall Scholarship. This is a great honor! Jonathan, however, has declined the interview since he has determined that schools in the United States will offer him better graduate training and he did not want to keep another student from having the opportunity to interview for the Marshall Scholarship.

This is the kind of integrity and honor that our students show! I am very proud of Jonathan not only for being granted an interview, but also in allowing another student the opportunity by removing himself from the process.

Finally, this is a good example of why it is important to consider applying for grants and scholarships; it helps you to refine your goals and find the best programs in your discipline. As Jonathan studied the Cambridge graduate program and compared it with others such as MIT he realized that Cambridge simply wasn't the best fit for him.

Congratulations Jonathan and continued success!
