We are proud to announce the finalists for this year’s 2014 Fall Semester Intense Intestines Scholarship. For the first time, we will be offering two scholarships. The first place recipient will receive a scholarship of $2,500 and the runner up will be receiving a scholarship of $1,000 to put towards their education. As the IIF continues to grow, we hope to expand our Intense Intestines Scholarship program to help even more young adults reach their goals of a higher education.
There were a large amount of applicants this round, all of which were very deserving of the scholarships. The stories we received were touching and heart felt. It was extremely difficult for us to narrow the applicants to just five. We eagerly await the day when we can award even more scholarships.
Our five finalists will be asked to create a two-minute video that introduces themselves to the IIF Board of Directors and shares more of their IBD story.
Below are the five applicants who have been chosen as the finalists for the Fall 2014 scholarships:
– Lauren Lipsyc
– Brittany Sylvester
– Meghan Cary
– Connor Gillen
– Casey Blair
Congratulations to the Intense Intestines Scholarship Finalists! We look forward to hearing more of your stories and we know the final decision will be a difficult one.
Thank you to all those who applied this year. We encourage you to apply again next semester. We were moved by all of your submissions and wish you nothing but the best in health and education going forward.
