"This scholarship will exponentially provide help for my Fall 2020 term at Hawaii Pacific University. I'm so honored that my Think Global Act Local Share Your Colors Project got selected for a scholarship. It feels incredible to not only give back to my community but also to financially support my academic endeavors in Psychology and Environmental Studies!"

"Thank you for awarding me this scholarship to help me learn more about the environment and be a stronger advocate for causes I am passionate about. I will be applying the Beauty for a Cause scholarship to an educational program on marine life conservation. The program allows me to further my environmental knowledge and efforts by learning from organizations such as, SEMARNAT, PROFEPA, and Canica by giving me the opportunity to work with marine life and learn from conservation specialists."
