Four years ago, Sydney Menne was a commercial aviation major taking physics and astronomy classes because she found them interesting.
Now, her physics research has led her to one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. Sydney will spend the next few years of her life studying in the United Kingdom with a Marshall Scholarship. She is one of 40 recipients out of 951 university-endorsed applicants.
“It’s just a great feeling,” Sydney says, “to be able to represent on that level and show that with a lot of support from the faculty and hard work you can go to UND and they’ll give you the support that you need to achieve really big things.”
