The Collins, Samber and Washington AACEAINC Scholarships are not based on financial need but on
outstanding academic performance and meritorious service.
The AACEAINC Scholarship is important to me because it allows me an
opportunity to pursue my goals. It is my desire to take advantage of  
opportunities afforded me and scholarships
are the best opportunities for me currently. I feel compelled to apply
for those that I believe I may qualify and glad that I am awarded this

Barnard College-Columbia University 2019
                               Diamond Moody
 Diamond received her scholarship from AACEAINC                
 believing she would major in Computer Engineering.
 However, in her Freshman year at Carnegie Mellon
 University, she joined the Robtics Team, pursuing her
 love for robotics, and became an integral part of the
 Robotics Team. That year she engineered the device
 that enabled the team to win a hard fought competition.
 Inspired, she considered a major in Mechanical
 Engineering. Unbeknown to her, while taking an intense   
 Physics course, she found her niche. Physics, then,
 became the center of Diamond's world and she decisively  
 became a  Physics Major. She went on to being inducted
 into the National Physics Honor Society and Sigma Xi the
Scientific Research Honor Society at Carnegie Mellon    
 University. Diligently, despite a debilitating accident that left
 her wheelchair dependent for a significant time, she stayed
ever devoted to her studies and remained on the Dean's
List. Diamond graduated with honors and distinctions in
May, 2019. Her journey continues as she joins the employ
and problem-solving ranks of the Johns Hopkins University
community. AACEAINC extends congratulations, accolades,
and only the best of wishes as a new chapter commences!

-Safiya Noel-
Mildred Collins Nursing/ Health Science/ Medicine Scholarship
Awardee 2015

Graduated with Honors and High Distinctions:
Barnard College-Columbia University
Sociology Major
May, 2019
          Safiya Noel
Safiya  received her scholarship from AACEAINC
entering Barnard College as a premed student
starting her Freshman year taking general chemistry,   
organic chemistry, and calculus fulfilling necessary
course requirements. However, being engaged
in her community and feeling the need to assist others,
she would go on to become a Student Admissions
Representative, a Resident Assistant, an Intern with
CORO New York a civic leadership program that
advances youth communications, and a recipient of the
Citizens Committee for Children Founders Award. She
received this award for her unwavering commitment
to child
well-being and civic life. Safiya's consideration for moving
in the direction of Sociology became very apparent
when she became an Intern in Barnard’s Athena Center   
for Leadership Studies that is dedicated to the
advancement of women leaders and her involvement
in Columbia’s Peer Health Exchange. As undergraduates
will change majors, she switched majors from premed to
sociology. Outstandingly, her skills have already begun to
make a difference. Desirous of spending the next two years
after graduation, working in her community with the City's
youth, she  enlisted in Teach For America, an organization
that strives to create equity in classrooms throughout the
country. After Safiya's brief two year hiatus teaching our
youth, she will then continue her studies in pursuit of
a career in public policy. Her objective is to obtain a dual
Master’s Degree in Public Health and Public Administration.  
ACEAINC extends congratulations, accolades, and only
the best of wishes as a new chapter commences!
