Coming from a disadvantaged background meant that Sarah had to think very long and hard before embarking on an application to university. She is acutely aware of the many pressures involved in going to college when you have to work just to get by. So, for her, the UCD Champions Scholarship means everything.
The Scholarship has given Sarah a huge sense of relief and the freedom to not have to worry about how she is going to pay the rent, buy books and even afford lunch each day. Knowing she has the support of kind alumni like you has given Sarah the opportunity of a lifetime – one she richly deserves and is fully taking advantage of.
To all the supporters of the UCD Champions Scholarship, thank you. I genuinely just feel so lucky.
