"Receiving the NEARS Scholarship has been a great help to me and my family. It eased the stress of moving and getting started with schoolwork by ensuring that I could afford all the supplies I needed to get the semester off to a good start. College costs are already daunting to begin with, and I'm very grateful to NEARS for providing me with some peace of mind."
"NEARS's scholarship has helped to alleviate the financial stress of post-secondary education, while communicating their immense support for the education of the next generation. My investment in a Biomedical Engineering degree will allow me to help others for the rest of my career, so I'll be able to give back to the community and the world. Thank you for your investment in my future."
