On 1 January 2007 The Fairfield Ledger reported: In December 2006, Suzannah Schindler, a student at the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA was awarded a full scholarship to attend college. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.

The (US)$160,000 scholarship will cover room, board, and tuition during the four-years she studies for her Liberal Arts and the Sciences degree at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA.

The full scholarship was awarded to Ms Schindler, daughter of Rich and June Schindler of Fairfield, by the College Match, a programme that awards grants to top American colleges.

Only 102 grants were awarded out of thousands of applicants. They were based on three essays and answers to questions on a 20-page application.

Among her numerous school achievements she finished first in the state in the Odyssey of the Mind competition [a creative problem-solving competition], and finished first in the world in a Destination Imagination competition [which stresses complex thinking, problem solving, and teamwork].

The article quoted an official of the College Match as saying, 'Suzannah embodied the ideals of a College Match student. She's passionate. She's public service minded. She will do great things at Wellesley College.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
