2018/19 Scholars at Welcome Reception

On 9th October 2018, St. George's Society hosted our second annual Scholar Welcome Reception. The event welcomed 2018/19 scholars from Lehman and Hunter Colleges, notable alumni and members of the Scholarship Committee to meet one another and discuss goals for the future.

Naima is pursuing her BA in Political Science along with a certificate in Human Rights. She commented that her scholarship gave her the freedom to undertake internships with social justice organizations that would further her career in the human rights field.

Aaishah, a Biochemistry student and mother, noted that her scholarship was a big step towards her lifelong dream of becoming a doctor—a dream that she no longer needed to put on hold:

“This journey has not been easy but I am determined to reach my goals so that the women from my community see that anything is possible with the right support.”

The reception was a part of a larger effort to foster a network amongst scholars and the wider St. George’s Society community. In addition to financial support, scholars are provided complimentary memberships to the Society, connecting them to an influential group of people from a range of industries.

Executive Director Anna Titley remarked, “We are invested in the success of our scholars beyond graduation. We hope that through membership, we can aid the cultivation of transferable skills and help our scholars establish the best possible foundation for career success”

Since the Scholarship Program was established in 2008, St. George’s Society has awarded 350 scholarships totaling almost $1 million in financial aid.

On behalf of our scholars past and present, thank you for your continued support.
