Cohort 2016

Cohort 2016 Group

In May 2016, we said goodbye to our inaugural group of Altman Scholars, 13 students who exceeded our expectations not only with their intelligence and hard work but with their humor, curiosity and optimism. In addition to being extremely proud of their myriad accomplishments over the past four years, the Altman team will miss their enthusiasm and just how downright fun they were! Each of them is a true joy to be around, and we wish them the best of luck - and are a bit jealous of their new colleagues. In this post, we've listed just a few of the accomplishments of these great individuals, but for everything they've achieved, we have so many memories that won't fit in the space below.
