Hackworth Fellows Scott and Wang Awarded

The Ethics Center is thrilled to announce that current Hackworth Fellow Beau Scott '19 (left) and 2018 Hackworth Fellow James Wang, have been awarded the Coro Fellowship and Fulbright, respectively. Scott is one of only 60 students nationwide chosen for the Coro Fellows program, which develops emerging leaders to work and lead across different sectors by equipping them with knowledge, skills, and networks to accelerate positive change. Wang, an environmental science and electrical engineering major, will research “hybrid-supercapacitors," a new form of energy storage with potential benefits for renewable energy, in the Paris suburb of Cachan, France.

Originally from Foster City, Calif., Wang has spent his SCU years developing and exploring his passion for the environment, and honing his engineering talent towards sustainable endeavors. He hopes to combine the two to develop technologies to combat climate change and create sustainable and reliable energy, water, and food solutions for people in developing nations. “The Fulbright is an incredible opportunity to explore the societal implications of technology and make a difference,” said Wang.

“I hope to come out of the Coro Fellowship with a new arsenal of skills, as well as expertise, to combat some of the world's most pressing policy issues,” said Scott. “In particular, I look forward to working with and learning from the many impressive experts and fellows to better serve the needs and wants of my community... I want to be prepared to help make impactful, positive, and tangible change.” Scott also aspires to serve in public office.
