Scholarship Recipient Testimonials

Oliver Anderson
Sociology and Human Development & Family Studies

Receiving the High Honor Roll Scholarship from the College of Social & Behavioral Science has continued to hold the doorway of opportunity for me. Through generous support and aid from my donors and CSBS, I can continue to learn, grow, and achieve greatness at the U. I am grateful and humbled by the opportunity to continue my education at the U thanks to CSBS and my donors.

Sara Seastrand
Economics and Political Science

Because of the college's scholarship program, I have been able to encounter incredible experiences which include working as an intern for the United States Supreme Court Curator's Office in Washington D.C.; as a research intern for the Senator Bennett seminar; as an Ambassador for the College of Social and Behavioral Science; as an intern for the President of the University of Utah; and as an intern for the Centre for European Studies, the official think tank of the European People's Party located in Brussels, Belgium. These experiences have shaped my college career and have prepared me for future work in law.

Nicole Talbot
Environmental and Sustainability Studies and Geography

Being the recipient of the 2013-2014 E. Rich Brewer Scholarship has truly inspired me to reach for my dreams. It has given me the confidence to achieve more and to continually push myself to accomplish all of my goals. This scholarship represents all of the hard work I've done at the University of Utah, and I am grateful to those who have contributed to my academic success.
