Caltech has awarded the inaugural Milton and Rosalind Chang Career Exploration Prize to Sean McKenna (BS '17) and Kyle Lakatos (MS '14).
The Chang Prize was established by Milton Chang (PhD '69) —a Caltech Distinguished Alumnus and senior trustee—and his wife, Rosalind, to provide alumni with the freedom to explore careers outside of academia and build their skills as leaders and advocates. The prize awards up to $65,000 in funding to each recipient.
McKenna received the Chang Prize for his proposed project "Exploring Ways to Tackle California's Housing Crisis." Lakatos received the prize to work on his project "Neighborhoods for Neurons: Incorporating early childhood development health services into community centers."
