I would like to thank the PEA for its generous support towards my academic and career pursuits. I completed my first year of engineering in April 2019 at the University of Victoria and am looking forward to continuing my studies this upcoming fall, having just recently declared in Civil Engineering. With an interest in the environmental concerns of climate change, I hope to eventually apply my engineering skills to the advancement of renewable energy technologies and infrastructure. Once again, I would like to emphasize my gratitude towards the PEA: its contribution has enabled me to continue my educational endeavors.

I am very honoured to be a recipient of the PEA scholarship. It will help me in continuing my education and working toward my academic and professional goals. But more importantly, it encourages me to know that my work is valuable. I am studying Community Development at UVic, and I am learning every day about the power and importance of communities in overcoming social, economical, and environmental problems. PEA's scholarship was a nice and timely affirmation of this in the beginning of my studies, and it motivates me even more to work harder so I can give back to my community in the future. Thank you!

As the recipient of the PEA’s 2019 scholarship award, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the tremendous support that you have provided me through this award. It is my honor to be the recipient of the award this year.
I am currently a Registered Massage Therapy student at the Okanogan Valley College of Massage Therapy, which is a program that has enabled me to live out my life goal of pursuing a career aimed at health, wellness, and holistic healing. Receiving this scholarship motivates me to continue working hard to achieve my goals. By awarding me this financial award, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the two most important aspects of my education, learning, and giving back. I hope that one day I could have a chance to help others, as you have helped me.
