"Thank you very much for your contribution to my education. This scholarship will greatly benefit my ability to learn and develop my engineering skills here at WVU. Being a senior engineering student, the work I am doing now is challenging and often time-consuming. Thanks to your generosity, I can focus entirely on my studies, knowing that I do not have to worry about paying tuition and that there are many people supporting me through my collegiate journey. Thank you again for helping make my academic success a reality."

"This scholarship has contributed to the most unique five months of my life. When I initially applied to study abroad, I knew the trip would be expensive. While I have always been a financially conscious individual, I was prepared to accumulate debt if it meant making the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Thankfully, this scholarship has afforded me the best of both worlds. As is hopefully evident by the picture, I have been making the most of my time in Korea academically, professionally, and personally. I have had the opportunity to network with industry professionals, take thought-provoking classes, and experience Korean culture firsthand. I have been able to travel across the country to cities like Busan and Gangneung to get a feel for local culture. I can not overstate the blessing of seeing more of the country outside of Seoul. All these experiences were possible due to the financial security this scholarship has brought me, and I am incredibly grateful for it."

"Being a recipient of this scholarship has changed my academic experience more than I can express in words. Being able to graduate without student loans is one of the best things you can have in a college experience, and these scholarships have made that possible for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your belief in my future successes. They have made college a much less stressful experience and helped me focus solely on my studies."

"This scholarship has substantially eased the financial burden of attending college. The support has allowed me to focus entirely on my studies, research projects, and involvement in competition teams that have added significantly to my experiences and better prepared me for my career after graduation. Being able to bolster my skillset in these ways further has been a primary facilitator of my (recently successful!) job search, and I'm immensely appreciative of the ability to do that, as provided in no small part of this scholarship."
