About Past Scholars
2018-2019 UMD Veterans Family Scholar
Caroline Ward

Caroline Ward is a freshman in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, trying to decide between civil or mechanical engineering. She is a part of a military family, her dad flew C5s in the U.S. Air Force. He has been on numerous deployments, including going overseas for a year in Iraq in 2012. His service has inspired me to continue in his footsteps, hopefully pursuing a job in the future in the public service, providing aid to those in need.


Lily-Max Cooke

Lily Max-Cook was inspired by her father who served for 23 years in the US Marine Corps retiring as a Lt. Colonel. His service in Afghanistan and his work in our federal government has inspired me to pursue a double major in Government and Politics with a concentration in International Affairs in addition to Public Health Science.
