One thought on “JACQUE REID: From Homelessness To Full Scholarship At Georgetown

  1. 100,000.00 scholarship for four years is not a “full ride”. What she received was probably a full tuition scholarship, because at 65,000. as cost of attendance , she would only be covered for one year and one half.
