Recipient Spotlight

Hunter Meacham, a Johnson Scholarship recipient who studied in Australia said when asked about his experience, "Our program focused on the importance of corporate responsibility, observing firsthand how Australian companies exercise this in industries like tech and banking. This experience helped me broaden my horizons and see a completely new part of our world that I never felt I would get to see as an undergraduate."
