Golden Key’s scholarship recipients embody the pillars for which Golden Key stands and we are delighted to assist them in making their dreams a reality. We realize that many college students today require assistance repaying the investment they have made in their education. We are committed to helping members further their education and academic pursuits, so we created the Education Debt Reduction Award, which assists members with repayment of student loans. We are excited to announce the winners of the Spring 2014 scholarship, who are awarded $5,000 USD each.
The recipients (in no particular order) are:
- Jason Heap, Walden University, United States
- Linda Moore, University of New England, United States
- Sarah-Kate Hawkins, Walden University, United States
- Lynda Charles, University of Central Florida, United States
- Eric Barber, Ashford University, United States
Congratulations to the winners!
Here’s what two of the winners had to say upon receiving the award…
“I am very appreciative to the Golden Key International Honour Society for awarding me with a debt reduction scholarship. It has come at a very crucial moment in my career where I have just completed a doctoral degree, but the very nature of the project within that capstone project requires me to continue with the work that I began with my participants. I had some difficult decisions to make as to how I could dedicate extra funding of my own towards the continued work of this project, in addition to fulfilling requirements of student loans.” – Jason Heap
“This award is not simply financial but rather a testament to a truth I have accepted: this life is difficult but not impossible. I believe difficulty and adversity are truly opportunities and blessings in disguise – how we allow them to shape and influence our perceptions means the difference between someone who settles for what the conditions life has to offer versus someone who manifests their conditions.” – Lynda Charles
Don’t forget to apply for our Fall 2014 Scholarships before the 1 October 2014 deadline!
