scholar snapshots: Then and now

In ways large and small, SYA students go on to influence countless professions, families, communities and nations. The ripple effect of your financial aid gift is therefore priceless and immeasurable. At SYA, we believe that excellence in education is achieved through the participation of talented, motivated students from all walks of life. A rich exchange of ideas and perspectives is the very essence of SYA. Yet today only a relatively small percentage of families can afford full tuition at SYA, and robust financial aid has become an absolute enrollment necessity. Student scholars share their stories and thanks to those who made their SYA education possible.
