Review for Akash Kuruvilla Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc., Gainesville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of knowing Akash Jacob Kuruvilla as a fraternity brother and he was nothing short of the ideal brother. He never made you feel inferior, always was available for advice, genuinely cared about the real person in you as opposed to what society viewed you as, was extremely professional and capable of every task he came across, and so much more. Having direct relations with him showed me he was a great individual but sadly enough having lost him has allowed me to see him through the eyes of a father, mother, sister, girlfriend, other family members and close friends. With just the right balance of purity and mischeif, I have come to realize he was the perfect son, brother, lover, and friend. With the loss of such a great individual, it is only right we keep his legacy alive. His close friends, brothers, and family have made an effort to keep Akash alive through this scholarship so that others in the position he was in his life can achieve greatness with the help of our funds. We want everyone to know about the life and times of Akash while simultaneously being rewarded for keeping their eyes on their goals in times of hardships and reaching out for the "American Dream."

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending the scholarship banquets as well as talking to the recipients about their life and how this scholarship will help shape their future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

definitely try to get more attention to this scholarship so that it can reach out to everyone in need and ultimately choose the most qualified candidate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how close the whole committee is and how many volunteers are available every year out of the pure genuine love and interest of the man who it honors.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

loving, caring, professional, passionate, openly inviting, helpful, genuine, and the positive descriptions have almost no end.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bless a lot of lives in directing them towards success in educational aspirations.

Ways to make it better...

this scholarship was online for the application review process so it can be accessed remotely (which I believe is in the works and only a matter of time before it is completed).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the proper publicity to make this a major scholarship that students nationwide strive for.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I really hope no one loses hope, faith, or commitment to this as I would hate to see it fall apart.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
