Gilman International Scholarship to Costa Rica, 2020

BS Biological Sciences '21

Vlada is a fourth-year student at Drexel University pursuing a degree in biological sciences. With the help of the Gilman Scholarship, Vlada will be studying at Universidad Latina de Costa Rica in San Jose, Costa Rica, where she will get an opportunity to gain insight into Costa Rican rich history and culture. Also, as a pre-med student, she is excited to experience a different healthcare system and to enhance her Spanish proficiency. This experience will strengthen Vlada’s preparation for a career in medicine and will prepare her to work better with the Hispanic community which compromises the largest minority in the United States.
