The impact of your gifts

As the second-youngest child in my family of eight, I grew up watching the rest of my siblings struggle with school and decide that college wasn’t the right choice for them. I kept my dream of being the first person in my immediate family to graduate with my Bachelor's degree. Thanks in part to this scholarship for my senior year at UWL, I am within one-year of doing just that. -Trevor

When I receive a scholarship it’s a reminder that someone out there believes in me. Someone I’ve never met has said “I want to help you pursue your dream,” and something about that really makes me feel like this is where I’m supposed to be. So, thank you for giving me the opportunity to follow my dreams. -Grace

UWL helped me to pursue my current major, as well as, my future career path. Recreational Therapy (TR) was a new concept until it was introduced to me sophomore year. From that point on, I have loved everything about TR and I know that I have chosen the right path for me. OT, is my ultimate goal. Using this scholarship, I will continue to educate myself and become what I know I will thrive at. Thank you for helping me to continue to do what I love. –Hayley

I have wanted to teach since I was 8, and I have loved history education since the 5th grade. UWL was clearly the best place for me to make these dreams come true. Money has always been tight in my split family, so this generous scholarship will go a long way. Thank you so much. –Jessica

I have worked part-time during the school year and full time during the summer for the last 7 years to support myself and my education. My schooling is my biggest priority and every bit of help I able to get means a lot to me on this journey. Without the kindness and consideration of others who wish to aid students, I would not have the chance to accomplish what I have so far. -Madison 

It is difficult to express in words how much this means and helps me. With everything going on in the world right now, it’s hard to make enough money to afford expenses, and especially prepare for graduate school. Your generosity does not go unnoticed and you are truly making a difference in my life. Hopefully, I can repay you someday, not only for the scholarship but also for believing in me. –Joseph
