“Since receiving the DYNE Scholarship, I have completed two semesters (four courses). The scholarship helped fund a whole semester of course work, which was very helpful as I am paying out of pocket for my schooling. My husband and I also bought our first home, so the scholarships helped relieve some of the financial burden during that time! I am about to enter my last semester of my MBA program and will graduate this October!”

“The scholarship was very very meaningful to me. I’m super thankful for DYNE giving me the opportunity to receive this award. I was able to use this money to pay for the last of my classes at UNF which prevented me from having to take out a second loan for school! I know this award means a lot to every student that works for DYNE!”

“The DYNE Scholarship helped me to be able to concentrate on school and not worry about how I was going to cover all of my expenses. Being a single mom in school is hard, but our scholarship program allowed me to have peace of mind! Forever grateful to represent DYNE as a scholarship recipient!”
