TRIO McNair Scholars Scholarship
Dr. James M. Schuerger Endowment Fund Scholarship
As the oldest of five children, Khadeja is the first in her family to graduate high school and to attend college. Born in war-torn Palestine, her parents were unable to obtain a formal education, leaving her father illiterate until the age of 17. Now in her final year as an undergraduate at Cleveland State, Khadeja has taken full advantage of her education and plans to pursue an advanced degree upon graduating with a degree in psychology. As a scholarship recipient, Khadeja has had the opportunity to increase her involvement in her program of study and to participate in and conduct research alongside well-respected professors. She has also conducted collaborative research with other area universities, an experience that will be invaluable as she works towards her Ph.D.
