Bio-chemistry student reaches new heights

Michael Zarychta continues academic excellence this summer in Toronto

April 29, 2024 — 

An enthusiastic science student who is on the path to greatness.

Michael Zarychta is a third-year biochemistry student with an unwavering passion for science. He found his drive for chemistry during high school and has since been dedicated to solving complex problems, exploring the intricacies of science, and bringing innovative ideas to life.

Michael’s academic excellence was recently recognized in March when he was awarded the Amgen Scholars Program Award which he will use to travel to the University of Toronto this summer. As he concludes his coursework for 2023/24 at UM and SJC, Michael is excited to take his knowledge to Toronto this summer. 

“It’s an exciting opportunity that caught me by surprise. I’m among the few people to get this opportunity, and I’m honoured. I can’t wait to go out there, continue learning, and meet students across Canada.”

In addition to his recent successes, Michael is an active student member at St John’s College, where he connects with students outside his faculty, studies in the library, and has received past success in the SJC scholarships and bursaries.

The 2023 SJC scholarship and bursary recipient of the Alfred H. Shephard Bursary continues influencing his peers towards academic excellence while continuously involving himself across campus.
