The SBB Research Group Foundation named named Michelle Vong 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).
Michelle Vong, a junior, studies environmental science at Brown University. Vong recently interned at Colgate-Palmolive to design and deliver zero plastic waste solutions for their products. Outside of her studies, Vong volunteers to recover leftover food from dining halls to donate to shelters and meal sites in the local community and has collected over 2,000 pounds of food.
“It’s so exciting to support Michelle, who shows such commitment to living out her values and implementing what she learns in class," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of the SBB Research Group Foundation.
