UC San Diego Bioengineers Named 2012 Siebel Scholars

Five bioengineering Ph.D. students from the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering are among the recipients of the annual Siebel Scholars awards. 

The Siebel Scholars program recognizes the most talented students at the world’s leading graduate schools of business, bioengineering, and computer science.

With the 2012 class of Siebel Scholars, 85 new scholars join an ever-growing, lifelong community of leaders. Today, 700 Siebel Scholars are active in a program that fosters leadership, academic achievement, and the collaborative search for solutions to the world’s 
most pressing problems.

“We are proud to support the Siebel Scholars Class of 2012 as they collaborate and forge lifelong ties with this engaged community of leaders,” said Karen Roter Davis, Executive Director of the Siebel Scholars Foundation. “They are joining an exceptional group of talented individuals working together with the Siebel Foundation to address critical societal issues in health, food, and energy.”

Siebel Scholars are selected from among students who rank at the top of their class, and are chosen by the dean of their respective schools on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated leadership. This year’s honorees from the Jacobs School of Engineering are below. (Read the press release from the Siebel Foundation.)
