The SBB Research Group Foundation named Jing Chen a recipient of its STEM scholarship. The $2,500 award empowers students to create value for society by pursuing higher learning through interdisciplinary combinations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Jing Chen, a senior, studies Computer Science at Union College. She is the Co-President of the Union College Chapter of ACM-W (Association of Computing Machinery-Women).
