Words have power; but they pale in comparison to the power of thoughts and feelings. Therefore, it’s impossible to do Graduate Programs justice in a brief statement, considering the gift they have given me. At a surface level, this scholarship has provided me much needed financial assistance that everyone understands. More than that, though, this scholarship reaffirms my belief that there are real organizations in the world, merely looking to assist individuals who place an emphasis on pursuing education, with no strings attached. For their help and belief in me, I am extremely grateful. This small sample of a thank you won’t do Graduate Programs justice, so I will do my best to return the favor by putting this scholarship to good use as I continue working toward my goal of a master’s degree. Thank you, Graduate Programs.
