Daniel T., Allan Hancock College
Thank you all for selecting me to be a recipient for the Osher Initiative Scholarship for the school year of 2021-2022. When I found out that I had received this scholarship I was lost for words. Times have been very tough with the recent pandemic and I know that many others applied for this scholarship as well so to be given this opportunity means a lot to me. I am currently in my last year at Allan Hancock College and am set to graduate with my Associate’s Degree and a few certificates in the Spring of 2022. With the help of your generous donation towards my education it gives me the financial support to offset some expenses of college and be able to further my education. I plan to continue on and pursue my goal of becoming a helping professional such as a licensed Social Worker. I hope to be able to help others and give back to the community and pay it forward for a student in my predicament one day.
Jesus S., Coastline Community College
I am truly honored and grateful to have been awarded The Osher Scholars Award. Your generosity will allow me to follow my goal of continuing my academic studies. Getting the best preparatory education to complete a higher education degree requires a significant amount of dedication. In the future, I plan on attending graduate school for a master’s in philosophy and law school. When I was growing up, my family did not enforce education nor educational goals discussed. As the son of a lower-working class Mexican parents, I am excited to continue my academic journey and make my parents proud. The strong family values they instilled in me while growing up provides me with the hard work and determination I need to succeed in school and beyond. I also hope that in receiving The Osher Scholars Award I will inspire my other family members, such as my nephews, to be motivated to pursue their educational goals. Now, I am prepared to reach my academic goals because without this generous scholarship, I would not be able to get further in my education and for that, I thank you.
