In recognition of his academic excellence, Seth recently received a full-ride scholarship to Stanford University worth over $300,000 through the QuestBridge National College Match Program for high-achieving, low-income students.

Stanford was Seth’s top ranked college on his match list of schools and he recalled the moment he received the big news. “So, I opened my letter and I immediately, like, screamed. I was like ‘mom, mom, I got in.’ And I ran downstairs and my mom starting crying and my brother. Yeah, it was kind of crazy.”

Seth plans to study biomedical engineering while in college.
