14-Year-Old Curtis Lawrence wins a scholarship to study in 14 Universities in the US.

The brilliant boy set to become a computer scientist as his passion.

Curtis Lawrence III has set a record at George Washington University, United States after emerging as the youngest ever admitted student of the institution.

Curtis set to pursue a degree in biology and computer science. At 10, he was already taking the SATs examination.

Following his graduation from High School, Curtis gained admission into 14 universities including several Ivy Leagues and was awarded a scholarship of more than $1.6million.

Some of the schools that accepted Curtis Lawarence III includes George Washington University, Hampton, Harvard, Howard, Morehouse, Morgan, North Carolina A&T, University of Carlifornia Berkeley, University of Chicago, and Yale University.

According to George Washington University, Curtis Lawrence III is the youngest undergraduate in the school. “The 14-year-old is the youngest student in our traditional undergraduate on-campus program,” according to the University.

In his interview, Curtis Lawrence said he feels he was prepared for a rigorous academic journey. “I feel like I was prepared for the academics because Walls is a very rigorous high school, it’s the top high school in D.C., so a lot of the work that we did reflected the work that I’ll be doing here in college,” he told a newspaper.

He explained that after getting scholarships and admission offers from 14 universities, he chose George Washington University because he wanted to feel the HBCU experience.

“Then I started looking specifically at HBCUs because I wanted the HBCU experience and to be surrounded by the people who are just like me and who are not only Black but academically talented,” he said.

He thanked and acknowledged his mother’s effort to help him succeed. “I never really thought I was advanced until I got here to D.C. My mom just always pushed education, pushed advanced academics and especially being at the elementary school in Harlem, I was surrounded by other people who were advanced, so it just felt like the norm for me,” he narrated.

As the world spins in an extraordinary fashion, it is suffice to say that those we once referred to as kids are now taking the center stage.
