Are you still in school? Are you working and if so, in what field?
I graduated this past May 2017 with my Bachelors of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering and minor in Green Engineering. I was fortunate enough to complete most of my graduate studies during my undergraduate career, so I continued my studies at Stevens Institute of Technology and will graduate with my Masters of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering this December 2017 with a track in Manufacturing. I have accepted a full time offer as a Materials, Processes and Physics Engineer at Boeing, Philadelphia and am excited to start this upcoming February 2018!

What did winning the EAP scholarship mean to you?
Winning the EAP scholarship meant I had the resources to continue my studies! I was able to remain near my school in Hoboken and take the mandatory in-person classes I would have been unable to take online. I was also able to focus on my studies without overloading or seeking out additional jobs.

How has winning the EAP scholarship helped you achieve your goals?
Winning the EAP scholarship directly contributed to my ability to achieve my goal of graduating with my Bachelors, Masters, and minor in less than five years. The scholarship also gave me the opportunity to focus on my schoolwork, and I was able to graduate with High Honors! The generosity shown by the Electrical Association of Philadelphia was much appreciated; thank you so much!
