Winstanley Enterprises, LLC Laptop Scholarship Recipients share their stories
Our scholars thank you for your donations!
“I want to say thank you so much again for choosing me as a recipient for your laptop scholarship. This truly will help with my education and directly affect my career plans for the future. Having a science heavy course load is already enough but on an ancient and slow computer, it makes things that much more challenging. I cannot wait to be able to quickly access online study material and other helpful content.”
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude to have been selected to receive the Laptop Scholarship award from your organization. This noble gesture has indeed lessened my financial burdens as a student and head of household. For instance, last semester my old computer crashed while I was taking my mid-term examination. It broke my heart because I barely had enough money for my monthly bills that will never stop coming. I prayed for an opportunity like this. I am so honored that you considered me as a recipient of a brand-new Laptop Computer.”
“I am writing to thank you for your generous Laptop Scholarship. By awarding me the Laptop Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community."
“Thank you so much for selecting me as the recipient of your scholarship. All my classwork and homework are reliant on having internet connectivity, but my laptop malfunctioned in the middle of last semester. I was not able to replace it due to me being unemployed. Your scholarship came at a time when I needed it most ”
“Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to receive a laptop. This scholarship award is very important to me since I’ve been struggling with my old computer. Receiving this award will be a daily remind to keep pushing forward to new goals.”
