The James and Patricia Sood Scholarship was founded in honor of a special couple both teachers. It is awarded to a young adult student who is pursuing a degree and career in education. After serving as an engineer in the US Navy and then having a successful career in business James went back to school to follow his passion–teaching. He spent many happy years as a Professor of International Business at American University where he retired as Professor Emeritus in the 1990s.
Both James and Patricia had cancer but that fact did not define them in the least. They were positive people who always lived life to the fullest and they were grateful for all of their blessings. They were married for over 50 years. As their daughter I am proud to offer this scholarship in their honor.Applicants must have been between the ages of 15 and 39 during their own diagnosis/treatment or during the diagnosis/treatment of their parent or sibling.For more information or to apply please visit the scholarship provider's website.
