Musician-turned-chemist named UF's first Knight-Hennessy Scholar

UF’s Student Success and the Office of Prestigious Awards congratulate Yu Tin Lin on becoming the university’s first Gator to receive the Knight-Hennessy Scholarship. He will join the 2024 Cohort, the seventh class in the award’s history, and use it to fund a PhD in Chemistry from Stanford University. 

The Knight-Hennessy Scholarship focuses on developing young leaders pursuing postgraduate degrees across all academic fields at Stanford. Scholars receive many benefits, including generous funding and a building designated for the scholar community. The scholarship delivers a collaborative experience where students learn together on impactful projects.
