“I am very honored and grateful to have been selected to receive this year’s Clifford Lee Kristal Education Grant from the Jewish War Veterans of the USA Foundation. This grant will reduce the cost of my undergraduate education and will allow me to save money to pay for future semesters.
I am a freshman at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, currently studying political science with a minor in Spanish. I am originally from Skokie, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago. Outside of the classroom, I play trumpet in the wind ensemble and the pep band at WashU, and I hope to get involved in Model United Nations as well. After I complete my undergraduate education, I plan to enter law school; I hope to serve as a federal judge in the future.
Thank you so much for making an undergraduate education more attainable for me!”
