Siddhartha Dhakal, an international student from Kathmandu, Nepal, was accepted into the Ph. D. program in biomedical research at Yale University upon his completion of his Bachelor’s in biology this May at ULM.

Dhakal always had the lifetime goal of enrolling in a graduate program at an Ivy League school.

Not only did he accomplish this goal, but also earned a full-tuition scholarship along with a stipend to cover living expenses.

Dhakal knew a great GRE score and 4.0 GPA wouldn’t be enough to impress the Ivy League and secure his enrollment. So, throughout his undergraduate career, he took on research and leadership positions.

Through the Emerging Scholar’s program, he participated in academic research his freshman year. Dhakal also conducted several additional research studies with different professors at ULM.

“I could not be more excited, because making it there was a reflection of my passion, hard work and self-discipline, which I practiced diligently since the day I stepped on campus at ULM,” Dhakal said.
