Nathaniel Scott Ewers
“Because of this scholarship, I will be able to focus more time on extracurricular activities such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and my course work. Supporting Engineering students as they explore their passions is such an amazing thing because these students will be the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.”
“Being awarded the Q Motorsports Family Racing Scholarship, as well as touring the (Q Motorsports Team’s) garage, has inspired me to dedicate more time to the design of the Formula SAE race car that the student organization ‘USF Racing’ builds every year.”
2017-2018 Q Motorsports Family Scholarship winner: Nicholas Wendrick
Nick reports: “I am finishing up my second year at the University of Florida as a Food Science major. I battled the highs and lows of deciding what route I want to go, but ultimately settled on Food Science. I am currently an independent affiliate with a supplement company by the name of 1st Phorm. My passion for fitness, body building, nutrition and health have fueled the desire to help people accomplish whatever goal they have through the assistance of proper education & training. This has also led me to enroll in a summer study abroad in Italy where I’ll be touring, learning & experiencing the culture and cuisine of Italy. I will see firsthand how many different food products are produced such as cheese, wine and pasta, just to name of few. As I continue the future, I hope to work for a health food company producing healthy products or supplements.
2016-2017 Q Motorsports Family Scholarship winner: Rishuv Mittal
Rishuv is majoring in Mechanical Engineering and contributes time to USF’s Society of Automotive Engineers. Rishuv says,“I would like to kindly take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for your contribution towards my higher education. This scholarship will help me reduce my financial burdens and pursue my career. Your scholarship provided me with a source of encouragement to follow my dream, and it will also help me earn my credentials in Mechanical Engineering. My passion for mechanical engineering is solely based on my love for automobiles, and your scholarship encouraged me to participate more in the club ‘Society of Automotive Engineers’ and build cars from scratch. I am short of words and would like to thank you once again for your generosity which means a lot to me. And thank you for supporting USF Engineering because without scholarship donors like you, who are willing to support education, students such as myself won’t be able to pursue their dreams.”
