Johns Hopkins senior Sandya Subramanian will be heading to Cambridge next year, thanks to the Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States scholarship that she won this week.

Subramanian, a double major in both biomedical engineering and applied math and statistics, grew up in Grand Rapids, Mich.; in her spare time, she volunteers as an EMT and sings in Hopkins’ South Asian a cappella group. While at Cambridge, she plans to continue her neuroscience work, hopefully using her combined math, medicine, and engineering skills to build tools to help doctors better understand the brain.

The Churchill Foundation awards only about a dozen scholarships per year; over the past four years, five Hopkins students have won them. Mr. Churchill would be proud.
