UT Scholarship for Chemistry Olympians

Onyx Davis, a recent graduate from Riverview High School, is the proud recipient of 2013 UT Chemistry Olympiad Scholarship.  This two year scholarship, valued at $1500 per year, was established in 2011 as a way of rewarding potential University of Tampa (UT) students who participated in the US National Chemistry Olympiad competition.  It is made available to a qualified high school senior who intends to pursue a life science major at UT.

Onyx is the second recipient of this scholarship and she is currently pursuing major in biology with a pre-professional concentration.  Her career goal is to become a pediatrician as she has a passion about helping sick children get well and she also wants to discover new drugs that are capable of treating terminal diseases.  She is confident that her studies at UT will aid in making her goals a reality. 

 Natalie Gonzalez, a recent graduate from Brandon High School, is the proud recipient of The University
of Tampa Chemistry Olympiad Scholarship. The two year scholarship, valued at $1500 per year, was
established in 2011 as a result of the annual US National Chemistry Olympiad competition that is held
at The University of Tampa (UT). It is made available to a qualified high school senior who intends to
pursue a life science major at UT.

Natalie, the first recipient of this scholarship, will commence her studies at UT this fall 2012 where she
will pursue a career in nursing. Attending university is one of her life’s dreams as she will be the first
one in her family to have the opportunity of becoming a college graduate. She intends to focus on
neonatal nursing as she loves to care for those persons who are unable to help themselves. Natalie’s
involvement with the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and her volunteer work at the
Brandon Regional Hospital are proof of this. She hopes that dedication and hard work will pay off during
her stay at UT.Natalie Gonzalez, a recent graduate from Brandon High School, is the proud recipient of The University
