The Presidential Ambassador Scholar Award is presented each year to one outstanding student from each of the Health Science Center’s five schools.

These students are recommended by their deans for exemplary scholarship, leadership, and service.

This year we are proud to announce that Brian Stoveken, a graduate student in the Biology of Aging program, has been selected to represent the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Dr. Sophie Piña, assistant dean at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, explained that it was a very competitive process and the selection of the top candidate was a difficult one for the GSBS Award Committee.

“Brian was selected among several outstanding and stellar graduate school program students,” Dr. Piña said. “He is an exceptional student that is very deserving of his title of the Presidential Ambassador Scholar and we are proud that he will represent the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.”

In addition to receiving a scholarship, Brian will represent the GSBS student body at several distinguished events throughout the year, including the Presidential Distinguished Lecture, the annual visit by the Executive Vice Chancellor of the UT System, and the Presidential Awards Ceremony, among others.

“Because we have so many distinct schools here, our students can bring different perspectives to these types of gatherings,” Stoveken said. “I think it’s important for others to see this diversity in educational experience provided at UTHSCSA, and how we can work together to achieve the institution’s mission statement.”
