BYU student wins $10,000 Golden Key Scholarship

Brigham Young University student Brittany Macdonald is one of 12 winners of a $10,000 Golden Key Scholarship presented at the recent Golden Key Honour Society Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Macdonald was selected from a global pool of candidates for her paper, "Cancer Prevention through Diet and Exercise: A Curriculum for Adolescents," which was judged by a panel of professors in her field. She currently attends the coordinated graduate program/ dietetic internship at BYU.

Golden Key members from any discipline may apply for this scholarship, but only the most outstanding candidates are selected to receive the award. Winners are selected based on undergraduate school record, scholastic achievement, leadership and service, involvement in the Golden Key International Honour Society chapter and a demonstrated commitment to campus and community service.

The non-profit Golden Key International Honour Society was founded in 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia, to provide academic recognition, leadership opportunities, community service, and career networking and scholarships to college juniors and seniors in the top 15 percent of their class. Membership in the society, which has 320 chapters around the world, is by invitation only to students in all fields of study.
