“I’m looking to do something with medicine,” Mandler said. “I know it’s a great opportunity to continue my research in a cancer-related field.”

The DC chapter of the American Technion Society, which provides support for the university in Israel,awards scholarships to three students. Mandler heard about the scholarship though his guidance counselor.

“The scholarship covers everything from tuition and airfare to health insurance and meals,” Mandler said. “It’s very extensive which is why it’s so competitive.”
