McNulty Fellow Asha Jacob ’18 Highlighted in Latest Student Spotlight

Once again, a McNulty student is featured in the latest Hawk’s Eye View Post! McNulty Fellow Asha Jacob ’18 is a senior biology and environmental science double major.  In her blog post, she recounts how her longtime interest in biology led her to discover a second academic passion in climate justice and social responsibility. Funded by the McNulty Foundation, she has spent her senior year studying a 323.3 million year old fossil fish in the lab of mentors Drs. Eileen Grogan and Richard Lund. Earlier this year, she traveled to Calgary in Alberta, Canada to present at the 77th Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontologists.

We look forward to seeing what’s next for you, Asha!!

The McNulty Fellows Program underwrites the research projects of a select number of current SJU women majoring in one of the natural sciences, mathematics or computer science.  The Fellows live on campus over the summer while completing a 10-week faculty-guided research project. During the following academic year, they receive funding to present their research at national academic conference.  They also participate in professional development and leadership training programs to prepare for life after graduation.
