Julian Menzel (YC’2017 Physics (Intensive) Major) has been named a Gates Cambridge Scholar. He is one of 36 individuals, one of two from Yale, who will join 54 scholars from other parts of the world who will be announced in early April. The prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship program was established in 2000 by a $210 million donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge, the largest ever single donation to a university in the United Kingdom. Scholars are chosen for their outstanding intellectual ability, leadership potential, and commitment to improving the lives of others, among other qualities.
