“With the (AISTS Scholarship) I feel as though a major hurdle had been cleared as I knew that without the scholarship it would have been a real task to acquire the funds to attend in January. When I first read the email I was in a meeting and happened to peek at my phone, I was overwhelmed with a mixture of relief and joy. I had to internalize my reaction until later in the evening when I was able to read the email fully.”
Hall is having a Pool LYME to assist him with expenses that are not covered by his scholarship. It will be held on December 14 from 5 to 11.The location will be disclosed at a later date.
