On April 19, Hunter President Jennifer Raab hosted a luncheon celebrating the John P. McNulty Scholarship Program.
The program's goal is the advancement of women in the fields of math and science, and the McNultyScholarship is awarded to Hunter students with strong interests and talents in those fields.
Joining President Raab at the luncheon were eight current McNulty Scholars and three leaders of the John P. McNulty Foundation, which funds the scholarship program.
Over their meal, the students spoke passionately about the research they conduct with foundation support. They also presented their views on the future of women in math and science as they engaged in a lively exchange with Anne V. McNulty, the foundation's founder; her son Johnny McNulty, a foundation trustee; and Aprile Age, the foundation director.
