I am writing to you as a graduate of the Florida State University, something that would not be possible without the contributions of this organization. I graduated from FSU on May 1, 2015, with a Bachelor of Science in Computational Science and minor in Mathematics with Summa Cum Laude distinction. My final GPA was a 3.9 and I was lucky enough to graduate debt free. I was incredibly honored to walk across the stage in the Tallahassee Civic Center to receive my diploma. I reminisced back to senior year of high school when I applied to scholarship after scholarship and wrote essay after essay, all to make my dream of attending college come true. Now, as an alumna of Florida State, I will wish to thank you for your part in my achievement.
In high school, I could have never predicted the future life that I am currently living now. I thank you for trusting in me four years ago and giving me the chance to attend a University that I otherwise had no personal funds to afford. With the financial support of my company, I plan to apply for a Master’s program in Data Science or Applied Math in the fall, further enhancing my education. I am truly grateful to be where I am today.
Happy New Year to all of you! Starting January 4, 2016 our Scholarship Applications and Instructions will be available in our Scholarships section.
As you all know, this is one of our major BPWEV programs, made so successful by the hard work of the Wine Tasting Committee and all members who support it. We raised enough money to at least fund three $1,000.00 scholarships in 2016, maybe more?
The deadline for mailing the applications is on April 30, 2016. Please spread the word at your place of business or organization that you support. The scholarship program will be advertised in the local newspapers, as well as on the websites of the local colleges and vocational training centers. It’s easy to access our website: www.bpwev.org
Thanks for supporting this program in the past. Your hard work and caring make it possible for Adult Learners in our communities to advance their education and get a chance to earn a decent salary after completion to support their families. Our support is aimed at single moms and female military vets or wives of military vets.
