"I've been extremely lucky because of this support system that's permitted me to maximize my education dollars instead of taking on student debt which could limit my job options post-university. My Fellowship means that I can focus on finding a career best suited to me instead of merely one that can pay my student loans."
Graduate, Valley Proteins Fellow
