The man behind this scholarship is one of those rare types of people that you only hope to come across once in your lifetime. While I have never had the opportunity to meet Akash Kuruvilla, his ideology and beliefs are constantly reaching my ears. This is why this fund is so important. Mr. Kuruvilla believed in the "american Dream" as well as the fact that no man (or woman) was beyond redemption. This fund greatly expresses these two believes because it allows those who try to better themselves despite many obstacles. I was personally at the last award ceremony of this fund and the individuals that received funding were extraordinary people. They all had their own personal differences and situations however they all had the common goal of trying to face adversity through persistence. This idea is something I strongly agree with and is why that this fund is definitely one to help grow in the future.
