Scholarships.com College Scholarship Winner Uses Architecture to Redesign Her World.
Scholarships.com has been awarding Area of Study College Scholarships since summer 2008 to help students like Cheuk meet their college and career goals. The competition grants a $1,000 scholarship each month to a high school senior or undergraduate student planning to pursue a career in one of 13 areas of study, such as Design.
"The design scholarship is among the most competitive of all our scholarships," said Kevin Ladd, Vice President for Scholarships.com. "The overall diversity and quality of the entries made this particular decision a tough one for our panel of judges. Cheuk very eloquently expressed her background and her goals and, as a result, was awarded the scholarship."
Scholarship applicants are asked to describe what influenced their career choices. In her submission, Cheuk described how her passion for architecture grew under her father's guidance after her family left Hong Kong for Oakland, Calif. While helping build furniture and make repairs to their "new" 80-year-old house, she was able to begin designing everything around her, turning "every typical object" into a part of her "unique world."
The Scholarships.com Area of Study Scholarships are open to all U.S. citizens who will be attending college in the coming fall, regardless of age, test scores or grade point average. To apply for the Scholarships.com Area of Study College Scholarships, students can visit www.scholarships.com, conduct a free college scholarship search and complete an online scholarship application.
