Sophomore and junior Muses win major campus awards

Jaime Jaget (Class of '16) received a 2015 Raab Presidential Fellowship. The prestigious award provides outstanding Hunter undergraduates with the opportunity to participate in internships, research opportunities or study abroad experiences.

Jaget will use the fellowship to support her plans to travel to Los Angeles this summer with the Middle Voice Theater Company, for which she serves as Managing Director. An apprentice company of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in Manhattan, Middle Voice represents young theatre artists with the mission to reach out to different class segments in American society. In Los Angeles, Jaget will help Middle Voice expand its West Coast presence.

Krisha Mehta (Class of '17) received the Tukman award from the Office of the Provost at Hunter College. Mehta will use the award to support her summer career-building activities. An aspiring doctor, Mehta has received research assistantships with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center and the Denis Pelli Lab at New York University. She has also volunteered with New York Presbyterian Hospital-Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and Weil Cornell Medical Center-Clinical and Translational Science Center.

Mehta is also a visual artist who has taught art and co-curated the 2014 Muse Scholar Arts Showcase.
