David Fitzpatrick of Gaithersburg, MD wins the 1st GotScholarship $40K to Give Away. And GotChosen will continue its commitment to fulfill college dreams with the start of the 2nd GotScholarship $40K to Give Away with even more opportunities for future, current and graduated students.
GotChosen partnered with Dr. Steve D. Whitaker, Ph.D., Head of School at The First Academy, in Orlando, Florida and Patrick Barrett, Director of Strategic Initiatives at The First Academy for the official drawing of the 1st GotScholarship $40 To Give Away.
The winner was determined using the True Random Number generator at www.random.org. This independent website is a cryptographically strong random number generator utilizing random chaotic atmospheric data.
The process of generating true random numbers involves identifying little, unpredictable changes in the data. RANDOM.ORG uses little variations in the amplitude of atmospheric noise. The True Random Number generator ensured every entry has an equal chance of winning.
David Fitzpatrick, the lucky winner, was randomly drawn by Dr. Whitaker to win the 1st GotScholarship $40K to Give Away. It was a simple and easy registration process that David completed at the GotChosen.com website. He increased his chances of winning by using social media and gathering sponsors. David had nine sponsors – this was equivalent to ten entries for the GotScholarship $40K to Give Away.
David states “Like many of you, I too registered for an account that organizes and notifies me of current scholarships available, which is how I stumbled across the GotChosen scholarship giveaway. My purpose for applying for this scholarship was probably the same as yours; to augment my financial aid and ease the burden of college debt on my family.
Although the odds did not seem in my favor, I pushed myself to realize that this giveaway was chosen at random and that sponsors will increase my chances of winning”. And David’s dream to pay for his education without the burden of student loans will now come true.
David currently studies at Montgomery Community College in Maryland with plans to continue at University of Maryland. David will complete his courses in Environmental Science and Policy Major this year and now with his GotScholarship $40K to Give Away winnings David shared “This scholarship provides a tremendous opportunity for me to pursue my education goals in environmental science and policy”

Hello everyone! My name is David Fitzpatrick and I am a junior attending Montgomery Community College in Maryland. First off, let me start out by saying how grateful and honored I am to be randomly chosen for this scholarship.
Currently, I am studying as an Environmental Science and Policy Major and would like to finally transfer to the University of Maryland. Winning this scholarship will aid me in my self-perpetuating odyssey to help our planet.
Although the odds did not seem in my favor, I pushed myself to realize that this giveaway was chosen at random and that sponsors will increase my chances of winning. For those of you who are familiar with the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, the only way to explain how I feel right now is to imagine that you’ve emerged victorious from the Hunger Games with the help of your sponsors.
This scholarship will certainly be put to good use towards my tuition, debt, and books. Additionally, I will hand down any money I do not use. This scholarship provides a tremendous opportunity for me to pursue my education goals in environmental science and policy. Thanks to this scholarship, I will do my absolute best to make a change and I will not let any of you down.
Once again, I am truly grateful for this opportunity. I do not know if it was fate or luck; however, I do know you could win this scholarship too.
