Emma Neary-First Newfoundlander accepted to prestigious QUARMS program!

Emma Neary, a grade 12 student at Gonzaga is one of 10 students picked this year for the Queen’s Accelerated Route to Medical School (QuARMS) program.

QuARMS  is a unique program only offered to 10 exceptional high school students each year. The program shortens the general undergrad to two years, allowing students who know they want to be doctors get there faster. Just to be considered, students must first apply to the school, meet admission requirements, and then be nominated for the Chancellor’s Scholarship. The scholarships are presented to students who demonstrate academic ability, creative thinking, are involved in the community, and have demonstrated leadership skills.

Then the QuARMS playing field is narrowed down to 300 nominees, and after that 40 are interviewed, and 10 are selected. Emma was one of the 10.

We wish Emma all the best in her studies!
