Thank you so much Dr. Chia for your generosity and support. This scholarship means so much to both myself and my family. My father drives uber every night to pay for my tuition. Telling him I received this scholarship was such an incredible blessing. Thanks to you I can finish my degree and pursue my dreams. I am so grateful to people like you that invest so much in student learning.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity. This scholarship has made a huge impact in my life this semester. It allowed me to be in a better financial standing while pursuing my degree at Cleveland State. I am very grateful for the support I have received from you and I am very honored that I was selected for this award. Without this scholarship I would have struggled this semester because I would have had to work more while dealing with an eighteen-credit hour course load. This has helped me not only financially but will also impact my grades as well. Thank you again for your generosity and support it means a lot.
I cannot express in words how grateful I am to be one of the recipients of this scholarship. Especially during the pandemic, it has been difficult for my parents to manage my college expenses. Moreover, as an International student, I am unable to work part time off campus to meet my financial needs. This scholarship has been a saving grace during these times of hardship. Furthermore, it is also a personal achievement and a testament to my hard work and proof that what I have been doing has been paying off. I am sure there are plenty of more students who are going through similar situations and scholarships like this really boost confidence and morale among them. It helps us to push forward as this is a reward for our hard work. As a recipient of this scholarship, I am eternally grateful to you. I hope the best health to you and your family during these times.
I want you to know that as a scholarship recipient, I am very grateful for the support you and your foundation have given me. It means so much to me that scholarship patrons like you are willing to support my education, it truly makes me realize that my academic achievements and efforts are finally coming together to benefit me. It was not only generous but also very kind of you to do so, your support makes a huge difference in my life and I truly can't thank you enough for it.
Now that I have won this scholarship, I will have the money to pay finish paying for my degree. I can now focus on eliminating concerns I have over affording school and focus on my coursework. This will help me in the long-term by helping me open up more opportunities. Thank you, I am grateful for your choosing me. I hope to connect with you and find a way to return the
favor in the future.
Unfortunately, during my senior year of high school my dad was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease. Having a very close relationship with my dad and many unknowns to his situation, I decided CSU was the right school for me. I knew Cleveland State would be able to provide me with the engaged learning and extra support I was looking for while still being close to home. However, coming from a blue-collar family, attending college was not seen as a priority and when I made the decision to further my education, it was made clear to me my family would not be able to help in anyway. As a first-generation college student, I am hoping this changes the viewpoint of my family, encourages my younger siblings to also further their education, and to overall better the well-being of our family. I couldn’t achieve my goals without the generosity of donors like you.
Words cannot explain how thankful I am to receive the Chia Fan Foundation Scholarship. Receiving additional financial aid from the Chia Fan Scholarship has opened many opportunities for myself to gain additional education. Before receiving the scholarship, I was uncertain on how I would be able to invest in important certificates that will enhance my ability and present my value to companies. With confidence, I now will be able to invest in obtaining a pics and data analytics certificate after graduating this upcoming spring semester.
Thank you to the donor(s) for this great scholarship and helping provide me with the opportunity to continue my studies. This scholarship will help me pursue my education at Monte Ahuja College of Business by providing needed financial support. This scholarship will impact my long-term career plans by giving me the needed financial backing to finish my studies.
Thank you. At 26 years old, it was a life changing decision for me to leave a stable job in the food service industry and pursue finishing my education. While my return to college has been successful so far, it has brought some elements of financial insecurity. Thank you for your generosity and helping students who are trying to better themselves by finishing their education. The impact of this scholarship will be felt down the road with less student loans I need to pay off.
