The Grand Challenge Scholars Program (GCSP) focuses students on the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) 14 grand challenges that will shape the 21st century. The program has helped me connect with other students at UMBC who wish to make an impact in both their community and the rest of the world. By examining this generation's most pressing societal, technological, and environmental challenges through various lenses, one begins to see just how interconnected the world really is. I joined the Grand Challenge Scholars Program because it creates a network of people from a range of disciplines willing to do whatever it takes to ensure a better future.
