Scholarship Recipients Selected For 2018/19 Year
Thanks to funds raised at this year's English Ball, the Society awarded 36 scholarships totaling $149,880 to final-year students at Lehman and Hunter Colleges for the 2018/19 academic year.
The process of awarding the scholarships was administered by St. George’s Society’s Scholarship Committee working closely with the colleges’ Financial Aid offices.
“The applications we reviewed were all of a very high quality and well thought out. Thanks to the generosity of the members and their guests at the Ball we could provide support to more students than in any prior year. We look forward to meeting the scholars and following their progress through graduation and beyond,” said David Drinkwater, the Chair of the Scholarship Committee.
The majors of the incoming scholars span a variety of fields including Psychology, Political Science, Business Administration and Chemistry.
Lehman College student and aspiring social worker, Antoinette remarked, “The scholarship will allow me to turn my focus from worrying about paying for class to creating programs to better the people of New York and hopefully remedy the societal imbalances of this nation.”
Hasib is currently pursuing a dual BA/MA in Mathematics at Hunter College. She said, “As one can imagine, balancing three jobs while being a full-time student can take a toll on the brain and the body. The St. George’s Society Scholarship greatly reduces my financial burden allowing me to enjoy my education.”
Since the Program was established in 2008, we have upheld our commitment to breaking down the financial barriers that often prevent promising students from completing their education. We look forward to seeing what is in store for this next generation of leaders.
