With financial assistance and scholarship funding, students realize the freedom to participate fully in on-campus leadership opportunities, advanced research, academic clubs, and civic engagement. Scholarships also represent an affirmation, a vote of confidence that powerfully influences our ability to recruit and retain students all the way through to graduation.
College graduates statistically live longer and healthier lives, participate more fully in community service and leadership roles, experience greater job satisfaction, and rely far less on government assistance. Studies also confirm they are eventually able to provide better educational opportunities for their children. So by empowering a young person’s learning experience, scholarships help create a ripple effect that not only impacts families for generations but also improves the well-being of entire communities. In this way we meet the future head-on, preparing future leaders for global challenges yet unimagined.
