To be eligible for consideration for a scholarship from Women in International Trade, students must meet the following criteria:
Hello ladies of WIT-LA,
I received your scholarship in 2006 and thanked you profusely then as well as after the application of the scholarship to study abroad with University of Liverpool during the summer of 2006.
I am emailing now to say thank you because in the long-term this scholarship aided me in discovering my personal and professional goals, in helping others and making our world a better place, here and abroad. I finished my bachelors last May in Political Science, and graduated magna cum laude and with departmental honors. I will be graduating with my masters in Public Policy and Administration this coming August and am proud to say I have officially been accepted into the Peace Corps. My departure date is Sept. 28th, 2009 to Azerbaijan and I will be working with the Community Economic Development program.
I don’t think words can adequately express my sincere gratitude for the scholarship I received from WIT-LA just less than 3 years ago. I also cannot stress enough the impact the Marjorie M. Shostak scholarship had on me in my undergraduate. Without your scholarship and others like it, I wouldn’t have been able to complete my undergraduate with the ease a first-generation student does not often experience. My motivation, personally and professionally, has been inspired by the generosity of others to better our world, and organizations like WIT-LA who give back to their community do just that.
So thank you, thank you, thank you.
With the kindest of thoughts,
