A Testimonial

Mary Sinclair

“After getting accepted into Georgetown, the only barrier that still stood in my way was a financial one. I knew Georgetown was and is the school for me and I was worried that money would be the only thing keeping me from my dream school. This is why I am so grateful and appreciative to have donors like you who have and continue to make a Georgetown education financially accessible for me. This scholarship allows me to focus on my education without as much worry as to how my family can afford such a prestigious education. I am forever grateful for such a scholarship because I have been able to learn from great professors, make lifelong friends, and enjoy the beautiful campus that is Georgetown.”

— Mary Sinclair (B’23), International Business major, Houston, TX

“With your generosity, I have been able to attend my dream school, challenge myself academically and outside of the classroom, and make some of the best memories with the people I have come to meet at Georgetown. This scholarship has given me the opportunity to learn and grow, to help the world by helping others, and to truly live out the Jesuit values each and every day. Even though my Georgetown experience is coming to a close, the impact it has on my life both right now and in future years is one that I will cherish forever, and would not have been possible without your generosity.”

A Testimonial

Sang Doan

“When I was a high schooler in Vietnam, ‘Georgetown’ felt like a synonym for academic opportunity and possibility. Now, it has become my future and part of a reality that I share with other Hoyas. Thank you for enabling many students including me to get the most out of our time at Georgetown. Scholarships are invaluable in the sense that it does not only open up many doors for us but also provides us with immense optimism about our future. It assures us that we can always find help at Georgetown when we need it, and reminds us of our role and responsibilities as young Hoyas in this community.”

— Sang Doan (SFS’24), International Affairs major, Nam Giang, Vietnam
