I am not sure about the scholarship, I have not gotten one so I probably
wouldn’t be the best one to give you that answer. But, take your time
deciding what you want to do, I have known people in my classes that have
switched majors five or six times or even two or three times, it’s fine,
you just need to take your time and find out what you really want to do.
Just a bit of advice for you.
