“A college education is expensive and the Abramson Scholarship has provided me with financial support that has not only mitigated my stress but that of my parents as well. This foundation has also given me academic support through my mentor, Deborah, who I am so grateful to have. There are so many things I learned this year, but the most important one is knowing that I have what it takes to be a Hoya because I have the greatest support system cheering for me every step of the way.”
