The International Student Book Card Scholarship awards USD 500 twice a year, intended for F1 international students to purchase book and school supplies.
The following are the excerpts from the experiences shared by two of the winners from Laney College:
Sophie Camara| Senegal, West Africa
“I am currently studying Humanities, Liberal Arts and Entrepreneurship. I plan to pursue a career in Consulting upon transferring to a 4 years University in the fall 2018. After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree, I plan to pursue my higher education with a Master’s Degree and a PhD. By awarding me International Student Book Card Scholarship, the College has lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning.
The financial assistance will be of great help in paying my educational expenses. I can afford to pay for my books and school supplies, which will allow me to work more efficiently and release me from the financial dilemma I often have between paying for my health treatment (as I have Sickle Cell Anemia and hypothyroid disease) or using my savings for my urgent college expenses.”
Quynh Nguyen | Vietnam
“Laney College has provided a great environment for studying with lots of support. The professors are very friendly and helpful in explaining the lesson’s material. There is tutoring centre and many events help me overcome study and language difficulties. I applied for this bookcard to get the books and other school supplies that are related to my subject.”
