What does this scholarship mean to you?

The Boro International Scholarship is the key that will get me through the final door in my journey as a student. As an international student in the United States, financial limitations have always hindered my educational journey. With dedication and passion for studies combined, I was able to overcome those financial hardships through various means. In the final stages of my journey, I was challenged with the most arduous financial hardship I hitherto faced. In circumstances threatening to discontinue my education, the Boro International Scholarship enabled me to resume my studies, but more importantly, pursue my dreams.
