Testimonials from Past Scholarship Recipients


“The program helped me fund my undergraduate expenses , it took a lot financial stress off of my mother and I in terms of trying to make sure all tuition expenses were paid for. With the help of the scholarship program at HRI, I was able to remain in a private four-year college and graduated in 2014 with a BA in English Communications. While at Emmanuel College, I was able to study abroad , be involved in extracurricular activities as well as take part in an internship at Iheart Media in Medford, MA and Channel 7 in Boston. After graduation, I spent my Summer as a Youth Counselor with the Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program in Cambridge, MA and traveled around Europe for a month. Once I returned, I got an offer to be a Sales Assistant for a media company, Entravision Communications. I was able to grow my responsibilities becoming a Production Coordinator and Digital Sales Ambassador. I am currently at Northeastern University working with the Graduate Financial Aid Department. I plan on pursuing my Master’s Degree in Organizational Communication or Digital Media. I am very thankful for the opportunity I had to partake in such an amazing scholarship program!”

“Being named a Homeowners Rehab. Inc. & Cambridge Neighborhood Apartment Housing Services Scholarship recipient three times was one of the main motivating factors which caused me to achieve my academic and professional goals at Umass Lowell, as an Electrical Engineer student. The financial assistance I received from this program allowed me to better manage my monetary situation while in college and allowed me to focus more heavily on school. I look forward to graduation in the Fall of 2017 and the chance to apply the knowledge I have obtained to helping my community.”

“The 808/812 Memorial Drive scholarship has served as a huge support for my college career thus far. This scholarship serves as the financial fill-in for the gap that I need to pay for college every year. I support myself through college and every year I apply for various scholarships to help with my college finances. The 808/812 scholarship specifically has helped me in not having to take out any loans throughout my whole college experience so far. My family has gone through some hardships during my time in college, especially when I lost my Dad my freshmen year from a car accident. It is a great feeling to have a sense of security from receiving the 808/812 Memorial Drive Scholarship.College has always been a part of my plan, and it helps when there is funding to help support me through it. I will be graduating from Syracuse University in the spring of 2018 with a double major in Food Studies and Policy Studies and if it was not for this scholarship it would be much harder to financially support myself through this college journey. I am very thankful for the scholarship opportunities presented by HRI and CNAHS.”
