Quotes from past recipients:

"I was overjoyed and felt very privileged to be offered such an important scholarship. It has given me the opportunity to finish my studies, before I got the scholarship I was planning to take the semester off of study to save for the course. Now I am able to complete the final semester of my course and began chasing my dream job sooner." - Associate Degree in Aviation (Professional Pilot) student
