Students who benefit from Internship Scholarships
Gina Ridge, Fall 2015 NEIUAA Internship Scholarship recipient
For Ridge, the NEIUAA Internship Scholarship is one step closer to achieving her dream as a future educator.
“When I went back to school at the age of 25 I was determined to achieve the impossible; I would not be held back. What I have experienced at NEIU has been more of a blessing than I can begin to explain. Being a full-time student and working isn’t easy at all and requires that constant ‘go-go-go!’ That being said, from the moment I began receiving financial support from NEIU I was at a loss for words and I still am.”
Rachel Hall, NEIUAA Internship Scholarship recipient
For Hall, the NEIUAA Internship Scholarship is one of four scholarships she’s earned at the University in the past year.
“We need to empower African-American youths to do everything,” she said. “You can become a teacher, you can do robotics. If children are empowered and educated, they can do anything. I hope my story will encourage others. If I can’t be anything else, let me be an example that you can do this.”
