Davis Saltonstall (2015):
Advice: When I was applying for the Udall scholarship I was challenged to express and illuminate aspects of my character that I had not previously through an application before. Jenni and Kris, two of the scholarship advisors here at NYU, were essential in my application's development. They provided really meaningful insight into questions that I was unsure of answering.
