Massachusetts Institute of Technology
My name is Patricia Dominguez, and I’m from Valley Stream, New York. Physics will be my intended major accompanied by a tentative minor in management. I chose to study physics because it has interested me more than any other subject in high school. Eventually, I would like to try and help further scientists’ understanding of the universe through my own research. It has been an honor and a privilege to receive this scholarship that will help fund my education in physics. I will be attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall of 2013.
