We’re pleased to announce that our scholarship committee has selected the winners for our 2020 college scholarship contest! There were many impressive applicants, but the committee has recognized these three as standouts due to their excellence in academics, community support and ability to overcome obstacles in pursuit of their goals. As the overall winner, Zoe Berg will receive $1000, while Christina Huynh and Jamar Harris will each receive $250 as runner-up to put toward their education.
Zoe is a rising junior at Yale with plans to study Mechanical Engineering. As a lifelong fan, and now advocate of STEM, her goal is to use her engineering knowledge to serve as a role model for other women and kids with disabilities. We’re so glad to be a part of helping her get closer to her goals!
Zoe had this to say; “The XBOSoft STEM Scholarship will help me achieve my dreams of becoming an entertainment mechanical engineer as I continue my education at Yale. Scholarships like this are truly essential in the pursuit of a STEM degree and covering the costs of college.”
When told that she had won the runners up scholarship award, Christina Huynh, an Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering student at Purdue, was honored and noted “I would like to thank XBOSoft for this opportunity. Receiving this scholarship means that my hard work has paid off and I am heading on the right track to be successful. I will use this scholarship to advance my education further.”
Jamal commented that “Winning this scholarship means the world to me as it helps to take some financial stress off of me in a efforts of pursuing a college degree.” Good luck to Jamal in his pursuit of a degree!
During the course of this contest, the committee came across many highly qualified and aspiring applicants. We at XBOSoft thank you for the time and effort you took to apply. We encourage our finalists and all applicants to reapply for next year’s scholarship! The deadline to apply for XBOSoft’s STEM College Scholarships will be August 1, 2021.
