Carmel Valley student receives Kyoto Scholarship

Manita Singh, a student at Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley, has been awarded a 2012 Kyoto Scholarship for Advanced Technology valued at $10,000. The Kyoto Scholarships are given to graduating high school students in San Diego County in conjunction with the annual Kyoto Prize Symposium, held this year March 20-22.

Manita Singh

Currently a research intern at Salk Institute, Singh last year was the International Science and Engineering Fair sweepstakes winner for her biochemistry project, while a project in the field of tissue engineering and materials science garnered her a semifinalist standing in the Siemens Competition and is pending publication in the Journal of Biomedical Materials. Among her many honors, she won the Distinguished Young Woman of San Diego title this year and holds a Certificate of Merit for Piano Theory and Performance.

Singh plans to attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Kyoto Scholarships, administered through the San Diego Foundation, are awarded to students who have been inspired to pursue a college education in one of the three annual Kyoto Prize categories: Advanced Technology, Basic Sciences, or Arts and Philosophy. Proceeds from the Symposium’s March 20 Gala will help to fund this year’s Kyoto Scholarships and encourage students in these fields.
