Senior Oscar Benitez was a recipient of the scholarship in 2019. He went with an HBU student group in the summer to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, where he interned at the USC University Hospital Complex. “Thanks to this scholarship, I was able to experience a medical internship like no other,” he said. “I was able to be fully immersed in the field and in the Spanish language for a whole month. This will definitely help me stand out during medical school applications!”
