Scholarships and fellowships have opened doors for many future leaders at GW, read their stories below:
GW students arrive on campus with big dreams for their future. With the help of scholarships and fellowships, they’re able to gain peace of mind while focusing their talents and brainpower on achieving their ambitious goals.
Scholarship funding has allowed Grace Seo to devote more energy to her academics and the opportunity to connect with professors and the diverse community of GW.
”It’s really important to not only be involved in your academics and pursue what you want to do as a career, but also—because GW is so diverse—it’s so important to embrace your own culture and heritage,” she said. “Being a part of the Asian-American Student Association has allowed me to meet people who share the same types of problems and issues and perspectives.”
A recipient of the Corcoran Scholars award and Steiner Scholarship, Ms. Reddy is involved with the band and orchestra at GW, and formed a brass quintet in her first year at the university. She appreciates the many concert series hosted by the GW music department, and especially loves the Fridays at Five performances. “Fridays at Five is a great opportunity for students to perform their works in front of a kind and receptive audience. I’ve enjoyed playing at these performances, as well as learning more about other Corcoran students’ works,” she says.
Scholarship funding allows students the freedom to take advantage of all that GW has to offer.
“With the help of the award from the Richard Lahey and Carlotta Gonzalez Lahey Fund, I can attend GW where my world has opened to a wide range of new experiences.”
“Learning from and with a diverse set of peers, and to work and connect with established artists, drive me to keep expanding my knowledge-base and skill-sets.”
