HSSCU Scholarship Recipients

As a 5th-year mature student, the HSSCU scholarship eased that burden. I could engage in my studies more. I can’t thank everyone involved with HSSCU enough for that support and feeling of joy. I’ll be paying this goodwill forward in my healthcare career.

The HSSCU scholarship was a great opportunity and relief which helped me towards achieving my goals.

The HSSCU Scholarship has undeniably changed my life, not only has it removed the fear and the financial burden but unleashed a more fulfilling life allowing me to enjoy college life and thrive in my studies as I pursue my dream career. The HSSCU showed me that anything is possible no matter how big the challenge may seem.
