A 22-year-old Northern Virginia Community College student has been awarded a scholarship that will pay upwards of $30,000 per year of her schooling.
Oyudari Baatartsogt, who lives in Arlington, was one of 73 students nationally to receive the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, according to a press release from the school.
The scholarship is intended to help students be able to afford to transfer their credits to a four-year university.
“This scholarship means everything to me,” Baatartsogt said in a prepared statement. “It will allow me to continue my studies, which is very important to me. I am so full of happiness right now.”
Baatartsogt is pursuing a career in psychology.
