“… the scholarship made this achievable for me. Without it, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity of learning in such a special environment. I am looking forward to all the new people I will meet and all the new countries I will discover along the way.”

Opportunity of a Lifetime

“Winning the memorial scholarship was an opportunity of a lifetime for me. But this experience has been so much more than that. Winning the scholarship meant gaining a second family, a home away from home and memories that will last a lifetime.”
