“I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor. I have worked at my family’s small business, which is a lumberyard/rental center, since I was in high school. I have continued to work there on my breaks from school and during the summer months. It is extremely encouraging for me to be rewarded in this aspect of my life, which is not always appreciated in the academic world. Thank you for the support you have offered me through this scholarship,” says Jane Bliss, Elitsac, Castile, N.Y., who received an ARA Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship worth $2,000 and an ARA of New York Scholarship worth $1,250 for a total of $3,250 for the 2022-2023 school year.

Nearly $134,000 is on the line. Apply here by the March 7 deadline.
