MAPPING A MILESTONE: Rochester students Hannah Watkins ’11 and Nathaniel Lindsey ’11 (T5) put themselves on the map this spring when they became the first graduating students selected to study as Fulbright Scholars in the United Kingdom, the most competitive of student Fulbright awards. Watkins ’11, a biomedical engineering major from Kenai, Alaska, plans to research drug delivery at Imperial College in London; Lindsey, an interdepartmental engineering major from Skaneateles, N.Y., plans to pursue a master’s degree in geothermal energy at the University of Edinburgh. Also this spring, David Liebers ’09, who has been working in Poland during the 2010–11 academic year, was selected for the UK program to study at the University of Leeds. He has instead chosen to attend the University of Cambridge as Rochester’s first Gates Cambridge Scholar.
