The Dallas resident is the 2017 recipient of the Glenn D. Kirwin Scholarship , a $20,000 grant administered through the University of Virginia Alumni Association and named in honor of a member of the Class of 1982 who was killed in the terror attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

A third-year human biology major, Ejesieme is conducting a comparative analysis of European, African and American health care systems, beginning this summer in Paris and continuing through her fourth year at UVA, with the goal of helping to implement health care reform in Nigeria in the future.”
