A few words of thanks from our past scholarship recipients are below:

Receiving the Curiosity Unlimited Scholarship has simply been a blessing! Because I received this gift, I am able to take an additional interim course that revolves around the ethics and legal aspects of the health care system. My big dream is one day to serve as a senator.  This scholarship has tangibly helped me build basic foundations toward that aspiration.

Again, thank you for your support!

The Curiosity Unlimited Scholarship has helped me to purchase my books for my senior year at Beth El School of Nursing. I am a non-traditional student and a mother of four.  The financial assistance has helped me complete my Pediatrics and Obstetric courses. Going back to school has been a challenge for me but with the help of scholarships and financial aid my dream of completing my education has almost come true.

Thank You!

The Curiosity Unlimited Scholarship has not only helped fill the void of financial assistance.  It has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. The Scholarship Committee does an outstanding job recognizing the hard work and dedication of each scholarship recipient. My sincere gratitude goes out to all the donors who make this scholarship possible and allows students in need, like myself, the chance for a higher education.

This scholarship means that others care about my education. By receiving this scholarship, I have the opportunity to focus on learning how to become the best teacher I can while I am student teaching. This gives me the ability to make more of an impact in my students’ lives. Thank you for taking an interest in my life and helping me accomplish my dream of becoming a teacher.

Thanks again so much for giving me such an amazing gift!
