2013-2014 University Scholarship Winner
"As a graduate student in the history department, I am intending to pursue a career as a University Professor, which means continuing my education beyond the SF State MA history program and pursuing a PHD. During the upcoming semesters I will be taking the full work load of a grad student as well as continuing to work two jobs to support myself. In addition to these obligations I will be researching and applying to a variety of PHD programs throughout the country. The scholarship award that you have so generously offered will help to provide the extra financial cushion which will allow me to take the occasional shift off, as needed, to make sure I can keep up with my studies and continue to hold myself to the highest standard. As someone who often works weekends, being able to take a weekend off and devote all my time to studying, can make a world of difference to my success."
