Hello, My name is Mea Haughton. I applied for this scholarship because I have always wanted to go to Hawaii Pacific My dream school to study Biotechnology but I need more funds for me to be able to study there. The world being in this strange climate such as COVID-19, I want to be able to study on campus after doing online school since March. I would be grateful for these opportunities such as the one you're offering.

Hi, my name is Sanyah Stevenson. I applied for this scholarship because I really want to graduate early (my junior year). I go to Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep on the southside of Chicago. This is a very competitive and selective school but giving the predicament the world is facing now with the Covid-19 virus, learning and keeping a 4.0 GPA has been a real struggle. This first quarter I had mostly B´s but I look forward to working to my best ability to get my grades back up. This scholarship will ensure that I get into my dream college to pursue my top two choice careers in real estate or veterinary medicine.
