Gates-Cambridge Scholar is a PSU Alum

Ms. Queen Nworisara Quinn, a graduate of Penn State, was recently names a Gates-Cambridge Scholar. The scholarship was created by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in cahoots with Cambridge University to help students interested in using their superior leadership and intellect to help society study at the prestigious university.

Ms. Quinn plans to obtain an MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organization and then pursue a PhD in Management. She states her career ambitions as follows:

My career aspiration is to develop research which helps to improve the competitiveness of African firms and entrepreneurs. I also aspire to teach students about entrepreneurship and hope that my research would prove beneficial in educating a new class of investors about investment opportunities in Africa.

Sadly, while Ms. Quinn mentions our beloved PSU in her profile, she fails to mention it under “Universities Attended” in her bio box. I understand Harvard is a tad more impressive, but there’s room for both.

If you have aspirations to serve the world community and are interested in applying for a Gates-Cambridge Scholarship (and mentioning PSU in your bio box once you receive it!) look no further than the University Fellowship Office.

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
