What did winning the EAP scholarship mean to you?
Winning the EAP scholarship was a major achievement. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of the Electrical Association of Philadelphia, and I was thrilled to be selected. It also was impressive to see how dedicated the Electrical Association is to supporting the next generation of technicians and engineers in their studies.

How has winning the EAP scholarship helped you achieve your goals?
The EAP scholarship lifted some of the financial burden off of me and my family. It has also enabled me to attend one of the premier research universities in the United States. I owe the Electrical Association a great deal of gratitude, as this scholarship is helping me to achieve my goals and advance my learning at the next level. The scholarship assisted in affording me the opportunity to get a highly technical education in my desired field.
