Combating Campus Issues Scholarship Winners

2020 Winner: Grace Schuler

Hi, my name is Grace Schuler and I am from Gaithersburg, Maryland, but now reside in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my older brother, Van. I am currently a sophomore hospitality management student at Drexel University and hope to graduate with a BS in hospitality management with a focus in event planning in 2024. In addition to attending classes, I enjoy being a part of school clubs, doing volunteer work, singing/listening to music, spending time with my family and friends, and adventuring around Philly to find the best foods!

Reaction Statement: Thank you so much for awarding me with your scholarship! You have helped lighten my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school – learning. I am grateful for the time your scholarship will give me to focus on learning and continuing with my volunteer efforts. It is also a relief to have some academic financial support as the pandemic has hit the hospitality industry, and my event planning position, especially hard. Although I have been working since I was 14, and will continue to do so throughout college, it will be scholarships such as this one that will allow me to complete my education. Once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and the scholarship!
