SM East grad named to elite KU Scholars program
The good news keep coming as the University of Kansas continues to announce recipients of financial awards for research and scholarship.
SM East grad Micah Melia is one of 20 KU sophomores to be named to the 32nd class of the University Scholars Program. She is the daughter of Tom and Anne Melia.
A part of the university’s Honors Program, the Scholars receive $250 per semester for five semesters and enroll in an interdisciplinary seminar. They are also assigned a faculty mentor.
The Scholars application process is competitive, with only second year students with a 3.75 GPA or higher invited to apply. Awardees are selected based on academic record, intellectual promos and the evaluations of KU faculty.
Melia is majoring in anthropology with minors in psychology and economics.
This year’s interdisciplinary seminar will be “Searching for a Just Machine: Why Computing Came to Be and What It Will Become.” It will be taught by Perry Alexander, professor of electrical engineering and computer science and the director of the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center.
