"You will need to seek out if you are looking for opportunities. Don't just sit at your desk. Go out and look for clubs, organizations, or professors who can get you started in your career. UCSD is pretty bad at guiding students, but their professors are so inspiring. Get involved and work for your future career!"

"I love being a part of the Biology Program at a worldly renowned university, such as UCSD. I am constantly challenged and pushed to my limits by my professors, my research, and my classes and I am thrilled by every bit of it. The only thing that makes it difficult for me to solely focus on my research is the financial aspect of my education. Being an international student, I was never eligible for financial aid or FAFSA during undergrad, even though I don't come from a financially comfortable background. Now, as a graduate student, I continue to face steep tuition costs for being an international student, with no external financial help. I am applying for this scholarship in hopes of helping reduce mine and my parent's financial burden, so that I can continue with and complete my Master's in Biology."

"The great aspect about the master of biology program at UCSD is that it is based upon a master's thesis. As a result, it teaches students not only how to apply classroom theories to the bench but also write in a concise matter. The downside to this graduate program is that only UCSD undergraduates can apply for this master's program."

"I participated in the joint BS/MS program at UCSD. It was a challenging yet rewarding additional year. While trying to complete an MS with only one extra years is a handful, it does force one to grow at an exponential rate. I learned a lot about research and a lot from my mentors. The La Jolla area is decently well off and therefore housing can be challenging, but it lends itself to being a relatively safe area. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything."
