The scholarship recipients expressed profound gratitude upon being named the recipient of the 2024 Leap Live and Learn Scholarship. Reflecting on the significance of the scholarship, one winner shared, “Leap has played a crucial part in my educational journey. With no one close to help with signing my lease, I thought I was out of luck. I became aware that none of the apartments accepted college students without a guarantor. Luckily, my apartment was a part of Leap’s guarantor assistance program and things brightened up. Going back to grad school wouldn’t have been possible without Leap’s help.” (Senior, Georgia Southern University), underscoring the transformative impact of financial support on their academic journey.

“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to each of the winners for their remarkable dedication to their academic pursuits,” said Rory O’Connell, CEO of Leap. “Supporting these students in their journey toward higher education is a source of immense pride for us at Leap.
