Private scholarships play an integral part in the success of our students

Today’s students are faced with a myriad of obstacles standing between them and their degree completion. They face a constant struggle with the increase in student loan interest rates and fees, the new cap on federal Pell grant eligibility, and the decrease in state award amounts.

Private scholarships provide a ray of hope for those students who need assistance to complete that last mile of their education. For many, it is the difference between completing their degree and having to drop out of school. Our donors make a tremendous impact on our students and their families.
