Diploma:✓ Job:✓ House: Pending

Mackenzie Grumbles /

Diploma:✓ I graduated with my B.S. in Industrial Engineering in May 2021 from Clemson University. 
Job:✓ I accepted a scholarship and job offering with the Department of Defense through the SMART Program to work as a civilian at Eglin Air Force Base. 
House: Pending - Come May 2022 I will be moving to Florida after completing my M.S. in Industrial Engineering at Clemson University. 

I would appreciate your help in crowdsourcing my downpayment on my first house! This is such a significant moment in my life where I get to spread my wings. I am honored to have been selected for the SMART Scholarship Program (Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation) where I will be conducting research at Eglin concerning GPS for drones in various applications and settings. I want to raise thousands of dollars by the beginning of 2022 since I need the funds two months before my closing date. You can donate directly to my downpayment or shop through my UpIt links where I can earn on average 7.5% back per purchase per retailer.
