“A scholarship to me means hope. It represents a person caring
so much about the success of someone else that they would
donate to help a student’s dream come true. When I received
my scholarship I was filled with hope. It was an amazing feeling
to know that someone recognizes the struggles students goes
through and decided to lessen that struggle.”

Programming Program

“Graduating as a scholarship recipient is more than just a
name, it’s a responsibility I have to live up to. It will help me
to continue to push myself to grow as a businesswoman, as a
single mom, and to not give up on my dream when things get
hard. My scholarship allowed me to look for a different way to
fix any future situation.”

Manuela Astudillo, Current Student, Radio Broadcasting

“I was financially struggling as a student. I was at school until
3am in order to learn more and finish projects because I had no
computer at home. With my Humber scholarship, I was able to
have enough to eat and put some away in order to save up for a
laptop that could handle my work in media.”

Meeka McLean, Current Student, Broadcast Television and
Videography Diploma

“A scholarship means someone believes in you. In particular,
thais scholarship supported by my professors at Humber means
that people I have grown to respect and look up to in my sector
believe in me as well. They believe I can make a difference and I
think of them every time I start a new project.”

my Humber scholarship and the people that made this award

needed during a very busy time in the school year that gave

my studies.”

“Graduating as a scholarship recipient boosted my confidence
as I entered my career knowing that someone I had never even
met was rooting for me to succeed. I feel confident in my skills

me feel and I have been able to push myself outside of my
comfort zone professionally.”
