Inspired By

Luke Buckman introduced me to the scholarship. Dr. Farrier and Dr. Fowler both wrote me recommendations, which was great. Dr. Farrier guided me through the stresses of applying for scholarships. Dr. Bunck, Dr. Fowler, Dr. Grady and everyone at the international scholarship office gave me much-needed advice on which scholarship would be more helpful for grad school applications.
