Student Story

"This financial support has freed me to focus on my studies, to volunteer to help other students who are struggling, to spend more time on campus developing relationships with my professors and to give back to the community through the clubs that I volunteer for. [My scholarships] made a world of difference in my life, and I’m so grateful."
