Tenzin Gyatso Science Scholars Completed First Year at Emory

The 5th cohort of Tenzin Gyatso Science Scholars, popularly known as the Emory monks, completed their first year of study at Emory University amidst the pandemic. Emory’s shift to distanced learning in March was a new experience for the scholars. Though challenging at the beginning, this gave them an opportunity to explore virtual classrooms and they had a productive first year at Emory. In the first six weeks of their summer break, the scholars successfully completed an intensive summer English program with Professor Jane O’Connor and Mike Lehman.
