“Our relationship has transcended the circumstance that has brought us together — that being mentorship. The joy and humor that has come about from these experiences has really served to cement a permanent relationship between myself and Hannah, and has proven that we are indeed intertwined for the rest of the time we are on campus and in life,” said Ayan Rahman, MS ’20.

One of the defining characteristics within the Milken Scholars Family is its strong community. From the moment Scholars are welcomed into the Program, they are encouraged to maintain close communication with their peers and staff. Campus Visits play a key role in fostering this close-knit culture as they allow Scholars to receive in-person check-ins from staff twice a year.
