At Staylisted, we believe that supporting the next generation of business owners and business professionals will aid in the growth of the economy and positively impact our nation. For that reason, we established the annual Staylisted Business Scholarship.
The scholarship is intended to help outstanding business students achieve their goals and succeed in school. The winner of the Staylisted Business Scholarship is expected to have great academic performance, admirable career aspirations and commitment, as well as a record of leadership, ambition, and integrity.
Congratulations Xiangyan (Zoey) Wang!
We received a ton of applicants for the Staylisted Business Scholarship. Our scholarship committee narrowed the choices down to the few applicants that we felt fulfilled the above mentioned traits based on their academic transcripts, community involvement, and career goals.
Although it was a hard decision to make, Mrs. Wang was our committee's chosen winner.
Mrs. Wang is an Accounting student attending the University of Washington - Michael G. Foster School of Business and has maintained a history of a 3.98 GPA. Mrs. Wang was born and raised in a small village in China and worked her way through High School with a straight A record. She worked hard on learning English and left everything to move to America to attend college.
Through many personal, family, and economical hardships, Mrs. Wang has persevered. She aims to make a better life for her family while also proving to the old Chinese mindset that women deserve an equal position in life and business.
Mrs. Wang provided Staylisted with a thank you letter:
Dear Staylisted and Mr. Salazar,
I’m extremely honored to be selected as the recipient of the Staylisted Business Scholarship. By awarding me this scholarship, you have reduced my financial burden and helped me get one step closer to my goal of becoming a CPA, allowing me to focus not only on academic learning, but also non-academic learning: real-life accounting experience, volunteer work, and helping other people.
The Foster School of Business at the University of Washington has been providing me with tools that I need to be successful, and your generosity will help me find my way and get one step closer to my goal. What I can do will probably never be as great as your generosity, but your influence on me will definitely make me feel more confident that I can make my own contribution to creating a better business world and a better tomorrow.
Thank you so much for your generous contribution. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give more back to the community. One day, I will be able to help other students achieve their goals just as you have helped me, and I hope to make you proud.
We are proud to provide Mrs. Wang the opportunity to continue on the path of earning her CPA and realizing her life goals. We look forward to the asset she will become to the economy and her local community.
The Staylisted Business Scholarship will be provided annually to students just like Mrs. Wang. Please keep an eye out for the start of next year's scholarship application process.
