What does this scholarship mean to Manasvi?
Education has always been important to me and being able to educate myself in the US was my biggest dream. When I got accepted to MSU, I was delighted- I had managed to get into the Honors College and RBC and had also gotten a good scholarship. However, the second wave of Covid-19 in India changed everything. I could see my biggest dream vanishing in front of my eyes. I lost faith in myself and my dream. Getting the SCG scholarship flipped everything in my favor. Hence, this scholarship is more than just money for me. It gave me a second chance to grow closer to my dream and helped me build faith in myself. I am eternally grateful to SCG team for giving me a second chance to accomplish my dream.
