Meet Our Scholars

     My biggest fear about college was coming out of it with a substantial amount of debt. So as a result, I applied to many scholarships in hopes of making my dream college more affordable. I applied to over 30 scholarships but I did not receive any. On May 1st, when I found out I was the recipient of the O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship I was so excited I cried. This scholarship means so much to me and I am very grateful. I would like to thank O Wines and the College Success Foundation for making my college dream an affordable reality.

     Growing up with a single mother who became frequently hospitalized beginning when I was in kindergarten, I was not surprised when my college fund began to take blows. I thought that all we could afford would be an in-state or community college which I knew I was not satisfied with, but would accept if I had to. The situation was worsened when my mother passed away, leaving me parentless, during my junior year of high school. However, I am now extremely grateful and proud to say that I will be attending MIT next year thanks to the generosity of donors such as O Wines.

     I can still remember the excitement and how speechless I was when I opened the letter that revealed that I was one of the recipients of the O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship. I am truly honored and appreciative of having been awarded this scholarship. Because of this, I will be able to obtain a higher education and accomplish my dreams. Words can’t describe how grateful I am. Winning this scholarship has motivated me even more to live up to my potential. It is the scholarships and donors like these that help pave a path for disadvantaged students to attend college. Thank you for supporting me on my path to success. I sincerely pass along a million thanks!

2013 Recipient, California

     I am very grateful to have been chosen to be an O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarshiprecipient. Prior to receiving the scholarship, I had an unmet fee of about $4,300 to the University of Washington, the school I will be attending in the fall. The O Wines scholarship completely closed that gap, allowing me to attend college for FREE! This means that my tuition, room & board, transportation costs, and other fees are completely covered. My family had no way of paying for my college education, so it was important that I won scholarships and grants. Words cannot fully express the gratitude I feel towards the scholarship donors.

2013 Recipient, Washington

     The O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship is a huge help and I am so blessed to have won one of the scholarships! The scholarship has given me the relief of knowing that I won't be accumulating a large amount of student debt that will be difficult to pay off after I finish school. I plan to combine world relief and missionary work after I earn a BA in Theology and a MA in International Development and Service. I want to be able to focus my career on helping people and communities and knowing that I won't have to worry about paying off a mountain of student debt will enable me to do just that. I can't thank O Wines enough!
