“The Marianna Brady, PhD. Scholarship changes my life in various ways. Financially, this scholarship will remove some of the post-secondary burdens and allow me to concentrate on my studies. Emotionally, my stress has decreased because I know I have monetary support. Physically, I will be able to focus more on my studies and less on my hands-on part-time job. This scholarship has inspired me to be innovative, brave, confident, and most importantly, believe that anything is possible with hard work and determination. My family and I greatly appreciate the support and kindness!”
