The Carnegie Mellon Women's Association (CMWA) has awarded Carmel Baharav, a senior graduating with a degree in computer science, a $1,500 scholarship as one of its 2022 award recipients.
Baharav was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, Society of Women Engineers and the Db choir. She was also a teacher's assistant, which she called one of the most impactful experiences she had at CMU.
"I have gotten to know so many students and hopefully have been able to help some of them," Baharav said.
After graduation, Baharav will pursue a master’s degree in computer science at ETH Zurich in Switzerland as an Excellence Scholarship and Opportunity Programme (ESOP) scholar.
The CMWA Scholarship Awards began in 1964 to "honor an outstanding girl at the university." The tradition continues today as each year the CMWA Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to selected graduating senior students, with a preference for students who demonstrate a commitment to the advancement of women in their academic pursuits.
Seven graduating seniors, including Baharav, representing all seven schools and colleges were named recipients of the 2022 scholarships. Read more about the winners on the CMWA's website.
