This scholarship means the world to me as it not only allows me to explore the globe but immerse myself into extremely diverse cultures while learning in a completely different environment.  It symbolizes my dedication to the dream of wanderlust and shows that my dreams are worth believing in. I can focus on living out my greatest fantasy without worrying about the financial hardship that comes along with it. I am sincerely grateful to the National Society of Collegiate Scholars for giving me this incredibly unique opportunity. It is truly a great honor.

Receiving this award from NSCS and GEICO is not just a personal achievement; it represents the support, mentorship, and opportunities that NSCS provides for its collegiate scholars. I want to extend my gratitude to my professors, advisors, and peers who have been instrumental in my academic and personal growth. Their help has brought me far and I would not be accepting this award without their guidance.

NSCS 2023 Scholarship for Women in Business sponsored by GEICO

Recipient: Haley Pelham, Prince George’s Community College ($2,500)

I am both honored and humbled to receive such an amazing gift from NSCS. I want to express the significance that the NSCS Scholarship for Women in Business has on my life. When I was notified that I had won the scholarship I was truly grateful because it meant that other people believed in me and my future. This scholarship will not just fund my education in business but encourage me to do great things in my community and strive to be the best. NSCS has truly changed my life and I cannot be more grateful for their contribution to my future.

Benjamin Gravelle

NSCS 2023 Scholarship for Military Veterans in STEM sponsored by GEICO

Recipient: Benjamin Gravelle, Purdue University Global ($2,500)

This scholarship will be essential to my transition from active military service to full time student. Funding for my degree is available via G.I. Bill but scholarships like this open the door for me to save that benefit for graduate degree programs later in my career. I cannot overstate how thankful my family and I for the commitment NSCS fulfills for its members.
