We recognize the importance of a quality education and are dedicated to helping students find their way to achieve their higher education goals. Here are a few students who received these scholarships and their appreciation for your support.
To the Board of Regents: thank you. You are absolutely a part of the concerted community effort to help me get this far in my degree program. I am pursuing the Cybersecurity BS degree at UNG, and I anticipate graduating Fall 2021; I will be pursuing law thereafter. I am passionate about personal private data protection and private data protection compliance, and net neutrality. Please know that I will honor your support by continuing to do well at UNG, and beyond. I am a first-generation college student; to graduate and earn a degree will already be a huge success for me and my family, but I am also aiming to do well enough to graduate with honors. I hold a fiery gratitude for what I have, and for how far I’ve come and, while I sense a true coalescing purpose taking shape in my life aided by my academic process, at the end of the day I just hope to do right by everybody who has helped me reach this day today, and all the days to come.
This scholarship will help me focus on succeeding in my classes and completing my degree in business. It also allows me to focus on my education and career path, rather than the finances of college, such as classes and the cost of books. I am very thankful for being selected as a recipient of the Regents Scholarship!
