From Scholarship to Spaceships

After participating in her high school's robotics competition in Worcester, Massachusetts, Julie Kew (Class of 2017) knew that she wanted to learn more about the wonderful world of gadgets, gizmos, and programming.

With news that she was accepted at Caltech and awarded a Caltech Associates Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship, she immediately traveled west to begin her undergraduate studies. Now she’s gearing up for her fourth year and looking to the future and setting her sights high: “I’m unclear on where I would like to go, beyond simply ‘space,'” Kew says. “Perhaps Mars, or an asteroid would work, too.”

“I know I will spend the rest of my life relying on the things I learn and experience here, both in and out of the classroom.”
