The Jeremy Schulman Scholarship for First Generation Americans is a scholarship program that was recently concluded, with the deserving winning students being notified and awarded their funds. The namesake sponsor, Jeremy Schulman, extends his sincere congratulations to the 5 deserving students for securing their place in the scholarship while giving his appreciation and support to all applicants who made submissions. The scholarship program was primarily geared towards the cause of helping students and families of these students who are struggling with attending school due to the rising costs of education.
The scholarship was geared towards and intended for children of immigrants who want to attend university as well as an opportunity to bring awareness to the myriad of problems faced by the same children within the education system of the United States. A total of 5 students were chosen as the winners of the scholarship from a 1000-word essay that was a part of the application process. The scholarship essays that were submitted all aimed to answer the same question: “Describe an issue faced by immigrants in the education system and how you would improve upon that issue”. The essays served as the main basis for the selection of the winners, with a total of 5 winners each receiving one-time awards worth $1000 available for them to use to finance their university studies by paying their education and tuition fees.
As his scholarship program has come to a close, Jeremy Schulman hopes that those who weren’t picked do not feel discouraged but instead be motivated and pursue other similar opportunities. He understands that not everyone is fortunate enough to attend university and how often unfair the education system can be when it comes to certain student demographics. This is what initially pushed Jeremy to pursue launching his scholarship program as he feels that everyone should have a fair and equal chance to pursue higher education and reach their full potential. Jeremy wishes that the applicants continue their perseverance in the world and their academics and that they will be able to continue pursuing their dreams and ambitions. As for the winners, Jeremy is hoping that they were able to take the first big steps in fulfilling their dreams and ambitions to become professionals in the future.
