Words from a Scholarship Recipient
As a career changer, it was a courageous decision for me to go back to school to pursue teaching. The biggest challenge became figuring out how to balance the demands of graduate school and work. The Bank Street College Scholarship provided me with the necessary breathing room to navigate that transition. I’m deeply grateful to the donors who made it possible for me to follow my passion for education.
