Marlborough High School graduate Anisha Gundewar, class of 2009, has won a Fulbright scholarship and is heading to India this fall. A new graduate of the University of Rochester with a double major in Health, Behavior, and Society along with Microbiology, she learned of winning the scholarship back in April, and has been making plans and preparations ever since.
Gundewar will be based in Mumbai, and working non-profit organization, Partners for Urban Knowledge, Action, and Research. Her focus will be examining how to best understand and utilize social structures in slum neighborhoods to carry out public health initiatives.
During her years at Marlborough High School, Gundewar participated in multiple science and engineering fairs in Massachusetts, as well as competing at ISEF in 2009. We wish her every success in her new adventure in Mumbai!
