Stories of Scholarship Recipients

Scholarship recipients are as unique as the awards that they win. In the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, we recognize that behind every GPA or leadership experience is the story of a student who was the right match for an award. There are also incredible stories behind the names of the scholarships our students receive.

Yes, the financial resources are important. But scholarships are about more than just the dollars. Scholarships are about people just like you who received support and are paying it forward to the leaders of tomorrow.

Check out some stories of the students who have received scholarship support and learn more about the scholarships that they received.
