Growing up, Quinten Meadors could best be described as inquisitive. Always asking his mother how and why things worked eventually led Meadors to pursue a degree in biology at the College of Charleston. “Biology gives me the background knowledge and skills needed to further explore my childhood joy of theorizing and uncovering the operations of the world around me,“ he says.
In the future, Meadors hopes to pursue a degree in emergency medicine and open his own clinic to make health care available in underserved and disadvantaged communities. With scholarships from unrestricted funds like the College of Charleston Fund and the Honors College Dean’s Excellence Fund, Meadors is on his way to reaching that dream.
“Receiving these scholarships has alleviated much of the financial burden for my family and me. I know it will go a long way in aiding me in future pursuits.”

“Receiving these scholarships has alleviated much of the financial burden for my family and me. I know it will go a long way in aiding me in future pursuits,“ says Meadors, whose scholarships allowed him to leave the U.S. for the first time and complete biomedical research in Singapore. “I began participating in scientific lab research the first month I came to the College, but I never dreamed that my love for science would take me abroad!”
