Introducing our 2021 Scholarship Award Recipients!
Grayson Gasque – I am honored to have been selected as the scholarship winner from The Citadel. From a young age, nature has always fascinated me; it is where I spent the majority of my time as a child. Studying Biology and Chemistry at The Citadel, I have been able to dig deeper into that childhood passion and understand why I loved it so much in the first place. The sciences have changed the way I view the world, broadened my horizons, challenged my long-held beliefs, and, most importantly, given me an avenue to use my passion to effect positive change in the world. Upon graduation, I will commission as an officer in the US Navy where I hope to be an aviator and eventually join the NASA Astronaut Corps.
Zach Kronsberg – As a Political Science major at the College of Charleston, I have received a strong liberal arts education, which has allowed me both to have a wonderfully well-rounded college experience and to pursue my interests in political science. I have been particularly fascinated by American elections and governing institutions and have researched the Electoral College, swing district House elections, ranked-choice voting, and gerrymandering. Following graduation, I intend to either pursue a law degree or a Master’s in the Art of Teaching, with a desire to use the knowledge I acquired at College of Charleston to help others.
Erin Lillycrop – I am very thankful to be chosen for this award. During my time at Charleston Southern University, I have had the opportunity to study many diverse disciplines that I otherwise would not have had the chance to learn about. By taking courses related to the liberal arts and sciences, I have developed a love for learning not only topics in my specific major, but also many other subjects. After graduation, I plan to attend medical school to become a physician focused on assisting areas of lower socioeconomic status.
