Every Immigrant Brings a Unique History and Story with Them
The United States is strengthened by the contributions made by immigrants. Every immigrant brings a unique history and story with them, but their dreams of living a happy and fulfilled life are just like the ones held by American born citizens. When we come together and celebrate our differences, society can better communicate and grow into a place where we all want to be. Eran Eyal has created this scholarship to help American immigrants find their voice and nurture their passions with post-secondary education.
