The March 22nd edition of Yahoo! News told the inspiring story of Watson Fellowship winner, Matthew Fink ’11. Fink, a passionate Starcraft II gamer, is traveling around the world to investigate the disabled gaming community and encourage children to find hobbies they are passionate about despite their disabilities. As an infant, Fink required all four of his limbs to be amputated after a severe spleen infection. Fink’s Watson Fellowship grant is worth $25,000. In an outpouring of support, the Starcraft II community has banded together to host a global fundraising tournament to aid in Fink’s efforts. The tournament will include 16 separate events worldwide and feature world-class players from the U.S., U.K., Germany, Spain, France, Korea, and Japan.
