Foundation awards record number of scholarships in 2017



Spring 2017 Scholarships – highest number in foundation history!

The Scholarship Committee awarded 72 scholarships for spring quarter for a total of $43,200. That is the highest number of scholarships awarded for a single quarter in foundation history. This brings the total number of scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year to 201 – double the number from last year. The foundation has now awarded $117,600 in scholarships for 2016-2017 which is double the amount from last year!

We are grateful for a banner academic year at the foundation and could not have expanded student support without the generous gifts of our faithful donors.
