The PSHS has extended its felicitations to Maria Charisma Estrella for getting offers of admission from the New York University and Yale University- National University of Singapore (NUS) College.

Estrella is a member of the pioneer batch of students of the PSHS-Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Region Campus.

“Congratulations, Maria Charisma P. Estrella, member of the pioneer batch of students of the PSHS-Calabarzon Region Campus, for receiving admission offers from the New York University and Yale University – NUS College!,” the PSHS said in a Facebook post.

“The Philippine Science High School System is proud of you.”

The PSHS cited that Estrella has been offered admission in New York University for “dual degree program of BS (Bachelor of Science) Biology and BS Biomolecular Engineering with scholarship grant.”

Established in 1831, NYU is among the largest private universities in the United States.

It serves as “a leader in global education, with more international students and more students studying abroad than any other US university.”
