Quotes from Previous Scholars
"As one of the first people in my family to attend a University and a first-generation college student, I am acutely aware of the example I am setting for my younger sisters. I decided to participate in the UC Davis Washington Program to make my family proud, and to honor the investments and sacrifices that everyone made to help me get this far. My future plans are to pursue a career as a lawyer and advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.”

“I’m a first generation college student pursuing a degree in Managerial Economics and two minors in Political Science and Professional Writing. My post graduate plans involve attending law school and becoming an attorney to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. I eventually want to create my own worldwide non-profit for victims of war, hunger, and disaster."
Summer 2018 - Managerial Economics
“I am a senior majoring in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior with a minor in Spanish. I plan to pursue a career in medicine upon graduating from UC Davis. I am currently working as a Science Policy Intern at Research!America through the Washington Program, and I have had the opportunity to advocate for health research and learn about how policy affects patient health care. Thanks to Lunardini-Owens Family Washington Program Student Award, I am able to focus more on my Washington DC experience and am one step closer to my career goal."
