Doris Buffett committed her life to cultivating a new generation of philanthropists who are not only leaders inside the classroom, but leaders in their community as well. In honor of our 15th anniversary in 2018, Learning by Giving (LxG) launched a new scholarship in partnership with MIT and the Boston Red Sox Scholars program. The Red Sox Scholars program targets high-performing, low-income students from Boston and provides them with six years of support to get them ready – and through – a four-year college. Now, LxG provides full-tuition for any scholar that gets into MIT for their entire four years, as well as a paid internship with the Red Sox and LxG during the summer. As a Learn.Lead.Give. Scholar, these young leaders not only have access to some of the best education in their hometown of Boston, but also have the opportunity to take a LxG course at MIT.

About Our Learn.Lead.Give. Scholar | Jeremy Cowham
Jeremy Cowham is rising junior at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) studying Computer Science and Engineering with a minor in Management. Turning 20 years old later this July, Jeremy has spent most of his life in and around the city of Boston. He grew up in Dorchester, MA where he attended the Taylor Elementary School in Mattapan, a place he would later return to during high school as a volunteer. Moving to Quincy, MA in sixth grade, Jeremy attended Milton Academy for both middle school and high school where he developed a passion for soccer, improv, speech team, and French, each contributing to his growing personal confidence. In high school as a junior, Jeremy’s introductory computer programming class spurred his interest in pursuing computer science, as he would later do in college. His senior season with the Milton Academy Varsity Soccer Team, he started in goal for the Mustangs, helping them go undefeated and win the ISL and NEPSAC championships, as well as the ISL sportsmanship award. He would also earn the French Prize and Head of School Award as a graduating senior.
These days, Jeremy is pursuing research involving techno-economic analysis of battery technologies at the MIT Energy Initiative. At MIT, in addition to his classes, he also plays of the varsity soccer team, performs in an improv troupe, and works with a student business association. In his free time, he loves playing chess, working out, and exploring nature.
