Perusing the internet in search of scholarships and grants, I stumbled upon the WWU Alumni scholarship. I immediately got excited and filled out the application then and there. I knew it would be a highly contested and sought after award but thought I should give it a shot. I was hopeful that my GPA and extra activities would make me a worthy candidate and it appears as though they were!
“This scholarship will help me be able to focus more on school by allowing me to work less and focus on my studies and classes – which is why I am in school to begin with!”
I am so unbelievably excited to have received this scholarship. Alongside a journalism scholarship, this will enable me to pay for an entire quarter of classes this year. It will really help me with my goal of leaving WWU with under $10,000 in loans.
I enjoy playing soccer, hanging out with my family and friends, reading and writing.
Living in Italy for two years really opened up my eyes to all the world has to offer.
