Anastasiya Matveyenko, Sage Scholar
How has your scholarship helped you?
After graduating from Midwood High School in Brooklyn, I became interested in medicine and biological science research. When I had to make a decision about what college to attend, my research indicated that Hunter College is respected for its School of Health Sciences. Having access to cutting edge faculty that would help me prepare for my future career in medicine was very appealing. The Sage Scholarship Program allows me to focus on my academics and not worry about being in debt after completing my undergraduate degree. Most important, it gives me an amazing support system of mentors and academic advisors who are there to help me solve any problems and lead me to the road of success.
