Chemistry major Sojung Kim has been named a 2019 recipient of the John and Elizabeth Holmes Teas Scholarship.

The Teas Scholarship was established to assist Penn State chemistry majors with tuition costs. The scholarship recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, ability, and a passion for chemistry.

“I'm really excited and honored to have been awarded this recognition from the Department of Chemistry,” says Kim, “Receiving this recognition is especially meaningful as a rising senior, because I feel like I've really gotten to know a lot of the faculty in our department through my time here.”

Kim, who is a rising senior, is currently conducting research with the Zhang lab, where she co-authored a paper in ChemBioChem in 2019. Her work focuses on synthesizing small, fluorogenic molecules that can be used to tag proteins.

Outside of the lab, she is involved in Science LionPride and the Nittany Chemical Society. She served as the outreach chair for Science LionPride during her sophomore year, and the treasurer of the Nittany Chemical Society during her junior year.

After graduating next spring, Kim plans to pursue a PhD in chemistry.

Please join the Department of Chemistry in congratulating Sojung Kim on this exciting honor!
