Josh Carter, Montana State ’17
Carter, a senior with a passion to develop smart prosthetics and find a way to distribute them to the people throughout the world who most need them, has been named a recipient of a 2017 Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University.
“It’s been pretty surreal so far honestly,” says Carter. “I didn’t really expect that I would be selected, I just wanted to give it my best and meet all of the other finalists. I was totally surprised when they said my name. Afterwards there has been a lot more attention/publicity than I expected as well.”
When asked how SigEp played a role in supporting him in his collegiate journey, he said SigEp has been instrumental in developing him.
“From the moment I joined, I’ve had older brothers who were Rhodes finalists, Goldwater scholars, and just all around incredible individuals was an inspiration. As I moved forward, serving as a chapter officer, going to Carlson Leadership Academy, and serving as the Residential Learning Community chair, the experience helped me develop my leadership and community outreach skills that have helped to make me qualified for a Rhodes scholarship.”
