I would like to publicly thank the Yogi Crowe Board Members for their financial support and encouragement in the pursuit of my master’s degree. This Fall Semester, I am nearing the completion of my master’s degree in anthropology at the University of Tennessee. I have received the Yogi Crowe Scholarship each semester that I have attended.
This financial assistance enables me to focus on school and relieves the burden of school-related expenses. This scholarship does not have the limitations of what you can spend the money for that other scholarships have and that’s what I appreciate about it. The funds can be used in a variety of ways, such as day care expenses, gas money or an additional book that is recommended but not required to purchase.
I would like to encourage any tribal member who is thinking about attending graduate school to keep this scholarship in mind. I am thankful for the support the Yogi Crowe Scholarship Board offers, financially and motivationally.
