“A room without books is like a body without a soul,” - Cicero.
Reading is a fantastic way to improve your vocabulary, expand your imagination, and learn. Appreciating books and spending time reading is not only fun, but is also great for your mind and can help you live a more adventurous life.

We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements).
