What Makes a Park Scholar?

Scholarship

Park Scholars earn excellent grades in the most challenging courses available. They are intellectually curious students who think critically and seek learning experiences outside the classroom.

Nikhil Milind ’21, a 2019 Goldwater Scholar, is melding computer science and biology to explore links between genetics and disease.

Leadership

Park Scholars demonstrate leadership, either in formal roles such as team captain or student body president, or informally by excelling in competitive or creative endeavors. They listen well, lead by example, take risks, and champion original ideas.

As a WomenNC Scholar, Jada Hester ’20 presented her research on the wage gap among women in Durham, North Carolina at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

Service

Park Scholars dedicate themselves to making a positive difference in the lives of others. They find public service personally rewarding and they participate in service activities on a regular basis.

Since a group of Park Scholars launched this charity race in 2004, the Krispy Kreme Challenge has raised about $1.7 million to benefit the North Carolina Children’s Hospital.

Character

Park Scholars set positive examples for others and have the courage to do what is right, even when they are in the minority. They demonstrate the highest levels of integrity, honesty, and conscientiousness.

The Class of 2019 partnered with the Town of Clayton and the Clayton Community Recreational Foundation while they work to build Harmony Playground, an inclusive park intended to foster fun and friendship among children of all abilities.

Thanks for following along with my day! I’m so grateful every day to be a member of the Wolfpack and a part of the Park community. Without a doubt, the best part of being here is the community. Whether I’m frustrated with dying yeast cells or celebrating a good day with some NC State Howling Cow Ice Cream, my amazing friends in the Class of 2022 are always by my side.

One of my favorite things to do at NC State University is chemical engineering research! I work in the Crook Lab, a research group which focuses on developing methods to engineer the #GutMicrobiome. The Park Scholarships program helped me get connected with Dr. Nathan Crook in my first semester at NC State, and I’ve worked in his lab ever since. My research involves using probiotics to help prevent vitamin deficiencies. I use #CRISPR to create strains of yeast that produce beta-carotene, which can be added to food to prevent Vitamin A deficiency. #ThinkandDo #ParkTakeoverTuesday #StudentTakeover

Over the summer, I studied abroad at 연세대학교 - Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. While I was abroad, I got to travel around the country. Here I am at the famous 서울 경복궁- Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul South Korea 景福宮. I also travelled to the port city of Busan, hiked Mount Seoraksan, and even visited the DMZ! NC State Study Abroad made it easy to find the right program for me. Where do you want to study abroad? #ThinkandDo #ParkTakeoverTuesday #StudentTakeover
