Scholar Spotlight: Nadav Griver

“These funds will not only help me tremendously to pay for my higher education but allow me to focus even more on excelling in my studies and becoming the best version of myself. You have reminded me, at a time when
the rigorous course work of college seems endless, that hard work pays off and you have inspired me to keep working hard.”

An Aerospace Engineering major, Nadav made the Dean’s List in his first year at Penn State University.
