Divorce Matters is proud to announce Amanda Nguyen as the winner of the 2022 Divorce Matters Academic Scholarship! Although we received many qualified applicants, as always, Amanda stood out from amongst her peers. The Divorce Matters Scholarship Committee was impressed with Amanda’s academic record, dedication to her community, and her excellent and emotional essay. Throughout high school and college, Amanda has taken the most difficult courses and earned the best grades, even making the Dean’s List in her first two semesters as a college student. In addition to her academic prowess, Amanda has focused her efforts on the community by working with the Colorado Homeless Assistance with Medicine Program and Sammies and Smile.
Amanda is currently attending the University of Colorado Boulder and will be graduating in 2025. She is majoring in Integrative Physiology and plans to continue her education after her graduation by attending PA School to become a Pediatric Physician Assistant.
When asked what this scholarship meat to her, Amanda told Divorce Matters that the scholarship has lightened her financial burden. In her own words, the Divorce Matters Scholarship “allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning. With my burning passion to help others, this scholarship is an opportunity for me to succeed financially and academically as I continue my ongoing educational journey in healthcare. This scholarship means so much as it isn’t just benefiting me, but it is also alleviating some of the financial burden it has on my mom. My mom has always been my number one supporter and I am extremely grateful that she is helping me financially in order for me to chase after my academic dreams.”
It is our honor to award Amanda with this scholarship. We wish her the very best in her undergraduate education, and in achieving her goal of becoming a Pediatric Physician Assistant. Based on her record of excellence, we are confident that she will achieve anything she sets her mind to.
We want to thank everyone that applied and wish you all the very best in your academic endeavors!
