“Thank you for your commitment to aiding the undergraduate experience of hard working students within the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences. I’m a senior in the department and a member of the Women’s Lacrosse team. This semester, I’m beginning undergraduate research in the honors program and hope to attend graduate school in the fall.”

“You are the reason I wake up every day with a smile. You are the reason I decided not to give up and keep pushing to change the world. Coming from a family of seven and four attending college at the same time was a tremendous burden for my dad. Words cannot even describe how happy I am to receive a scholarship. I will forever remember your generosity and use this opportunity to become great, so I can also do the same for someone else. Thank you so much!”

“It was not easy getting back in the college grind, but receiving a scholarship reminds me why I made a dramatic change in my life. I came here to better myself and my education and I am glad to continue learning every day. I am excited for the future: the continual growth in my art, the experience and training in clinical psychology, and the push to better myself internally and socially.”
