We are pleased to announce the winner of the second annual “Design Your Success” scholarship and the $2000.00 prize to Rebecca Chen of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!
The “Design Your Success” scholarship is intended to push the creative boundaries of applicants by requiring them to submit a 1,200-1,500 word essay on how they plan to design their own success throughout their lives. The interpretive, broad prompt allowed applicants the freedom and challenge of creating personalized goals and plans to achieve their own definition of success. Rebecca’s essay showcased her desire to step outside the boundaries of cultural expectations to pave her own path of success. This, coupled with her detailed goal setting caught our attention! We’re excited to see how her goal-focused, positive attitude contributes to her success at the University of Pittsburgh and wherever life takes her.
“It’s a privilege to support and contribute to the growth of students nationwide through this scholarship,” says Nelson James, Co-founder of Signs.com. “Rebecca was one of many applicants that showed impressive maturity and an understanding of the necessity of goal setting and perseverance. We hope that this scholarship will motivate her to push herself as she transitions to college and toward her future goals.
Applications for the 2019 scholarship will open up this Fall to students preparing to graduate in the class of 2019 as well as those who will be college/university freshman beginning in the Fall of 2019. More information on the “Design Your Success” scholarship can be found on our scholarship page.
