The Benjamin Graves Brown Scholarship Winner: Frankie DeIeso-Frechette

Francesca (Frankie) DeIeso-Frechette (A20) has sustained an extremely high and productive level of engagement in scientific research in biology and public health, in support of her career goal of becoming a pediatrician. Her contributions to several projects – including a new breast cancer treatment and maternal and child health in Ethiopia – have led to a presentation at a conference, a publication, and an honors thesis. She did all of this while completing a double major in Biology and Child Study and Human Development, maintaining involvement in various extracurriculars, and making time for her hobby of baking. 

The Benjamin Graves Brown Scholarship honors seniors who have shown promise in scientific research.
