SOUTHFIELD, MI — Drug Lawsuit Source is pleased to announce Cynthia Dragos, of Dearborn, Mich., as the recipient of the 2019 Drug Lawsuit Source College Fund Scholarship.

Established in 2015, the Drug Lawsuit Source College Fund Scholarship offers $1,000 to one student each year who best exemplifies determination and perseverance to succeed in their academic endeavors.

This year’s scholarship recipient certainly possesses those qualities.

Dragos is a first-year student at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, studying electrical engineering to pursue a career in engineering management. Dragos, who plans to pursue a Master’s in Business Management degree after earning her undergraduate degree, recently accepted an internship at Ford Motor Company, where she is helping develop basic neural networks using programs, such as Brain Maker and Scikit-Learn.

“I want to help set an example to other girls and women who feel pressured to go into more ‘feminine’ fields and careers,” Dragos wrote in her essay. “I want to help show people that engineering is not just for men, and to help lead the movement of leading women in predominantly male fields.”

Each year, the Drug Lawsuit Source College Fund Scholarship is available to one student who best displays determination and perseverance, much like Dragos, in their academic endeavors. The student must be enrolled in an accredited college, university, junior college; a high school senior enrolled in summer or fall classes; or attend a trade school in the United States.

“We’re proud to name Cynthia as this year’s scholarship recipient,” Buckfire Law president Lawrence J. Buckfire said. “She constantly displays the perseverance required to pursue a career in electrical engineering, and her determination to succeed and overcome hurdles is incredibly inspiring.”

The deadline to apply for the 2019 Drug Lawsuit Source College Fund Scholarship was Nov. 1, 2019. Details for the 2020 scholarship will be posted in the near future on www.druglawsuitsource.com.
