Receiving the Minerva scholarship is important because it will help me pursue my dreams of becoming a BCBA. The Scholarship will help bridge the gap between obtaining a formal education and the cost. By being able to afford college tuition, I can proudly graduate in Spring 2024 and reach my long-term professional goals.
I am honored to receive a Minerva scholarship and join the ranks of other ambitious and talented women in my community. Balancing work and school as a graduate student can be challenging, and this generous scholarship will allow me to invest more of my time and energy into my classes and internships as I pursue my Master of Arts in Counseling at St. Martin's University.
As an educator, I understand the many hurdles and roadblocks to higher education, and I am grateful the largest factor of cost was lifted from my path. Thank you so very much for your support.
I meet every personal challenge with my end goal in mind, to become an Elementary Teacher and help our community’s children develop the skills and knowledge base to be successful. Knowing that I have the support and trust of Minerva helps bolster my confidence and determination through my educational challenges. I know I still have a long and challenging road ahead and it means the world to have them believe in me.
Thanks for this generous gift, I am able to continue my education at Heritage University. I plan to pursue a career in special education. My educational pursuits would not have been financially stress-free without the assistance of the Minerva Scholarship.
After taking a gap year to work, I found that I was not satisfied withs working just for the sake of getting by. I want to do something I am truly passionate about, and I am beyond grateful to the Minerva board members for helping me pursue my passions.
William James once said, “the deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated.” As a future LMFT my goal is to help facilitate this appreciation within my clients. I am filled with gratitude for the Minerva Scholarship Fund to support me and my fellow recipients in our quest to follow our educational and professional dreams.
Receiving this scholarship is important to me because I am now able to afford the education to become a certified technical education teacher. I am excited to help students explore future career paths and find their passions. It is never too late for anyone to pursue their career passions and educational goals.
Receiving the Minerva Scholarship is meaningful to me because without it pursuing my master’s in social work would be financially inaccessible. I plan to leverage my MSW education to work in roles that challenge inequality and promote social justice for marginalized groups. I am excited for this opportunity and grateful for the Minerva community’s support!
The support and belonging that the Minerva Scholarship Fund offers to women in the community is invaluable! The women on the Minerva Board want to see other women succeed.
