“I have always been interested in helping the environment, and with this career I believe I can do so, by working on obtaining cleaner and affordable energy,” says Angélica, who is already looking forward to studying for her master’s degree in electrical engineering in power systems and renewable energy. “Also, I would like to help Puerto Rico to improve its electricity generation system. With this scholarship, I can now focus completely on my studies, instead of thinking, ‘How I will be able to afford this course, laboratory, books…?’ I am truly grateful.”
We’re honored to be able to help these students pursue the academic studies that will help them reach their dreams, whether they’ve known their direction for years, or they’ve more recently begun to figure it out.
“At the beginning, I had no idea of the right path for me as a professional, but I have always been passionate about finding answers, discovering, and creating new ideas,” says scholarship recipient Josué, a mechanical engineering major at PUPR. “At the same time, I have always been fascinated by aircraft. In engineering, I found a way to put all my passions together. My dream is to work in a company that helps the development of a better future. This scholarship offered me the opportunity to have a better college life by relieving some personal challenges and allowing myself to be 200 percent focused on accomplishing my goals.”
