This year’s Dr. Ruth Bleier Scholarship in the Natural Sciences award winner is Kimberly Stathas (she/her). Kimberly is an undergraduate student with a planned graduation date of Spring 2023 with degrees in Biology, and Gender & Women’s Studies. After graduation, she plans to attend medical school and apply feminist theory to providing quality care, as Dr. Ruth Bleier (her inspiration, and the namesake of this award) did.
When she is not studying or spending time with her friends in Badgers for Special Olympics, Kimberly enjoys exploring new places around Madison, spending time with family and friends, and dancing.
Congratulations, Kimberly! We can’t wait to see what you achieve in the future!
