"I would like to thank the Mary E. Geyer Foundation, Inc. for supporting females with their science studies. To be supported with your studies means a lot, especially in a community in which science is seen as a male profession. Therefore, I encourage my female friends at AUIS to take the chance and apply for this scholarship so that they can focus more on their future studies and become more successful."
