Receiving a scholarship from the foundation has been a great help to me as I get through school. This year with the scholarship I was able to pay my credit card back in full for my schoolbooks and continue to get through school debit free. This last semester I have been honored to join the CSI Honors Program, which will definitely help me as I go to transfer to a four-year school in the fall. As of now I am planning to apply to Harvard, Pennsylvania University, and Brown. With my cumulative GPA of a 3.
I am so thankful for receiving the Foundation Scholarship. It benefited me greatly by relieving some of the stress about funding my education. I like to get really involved in school from the start of the semester, whether it is taking school courses, joining clubs, or attending school events. I get so busy when the semester starts that it makes it difficult to have a job. Typically I work over the summers to save up money for the semester ahead. Unfortunately this summer I was enrolled in two summer classes which had an impact on how much I was able to work.
First I would like to give you a whole hearted thank you. Your exceedingly generous scholarships have allowed me to continue my education and have lifted an immense financial burden from me. It is doubtful that I would even be in school right now, if it wasn't for the scholarships that I have received. I am really very grateful for the help. I am a music major here at CSI and when I have finished my degree I plan to go to the University of Oregon to study Intermedia Music Technology. Basically the cutting edge of new musical technology, which could be applied to helping others learn to play music through different interactive means, developing new computer based audio processors, and even music therapy that could be used to help and provide effective therapy to individuals with disorders like autism.
