My father has struggled with unemployment for the past five years. Both of my parents are incredibly hard working yet together did not have the means to send me to college. Even with the scholarships Whitworth offered me I realized that I would not be able to afford this schooling and would have to apply elsewhere or wait several years before reapplying. Thanks to scholarship and financial aid, I am now seeking my career through Whitworth University.

I didn’t know how I would pay for my senior year of college. I had the maximum of federal loans, my parents had a PLUS loan, and I had little college savings left. My dad had also been laid off as an electrician for about a year, so his income was not going to be able to pay for a private university. State Need Grant saved me thousands of dollars I would have had to take out in private loans. This kind of aid is so important for students who are working hard but don’t have thousands of dollars to spare for college expenses.

Financial aid has allowed me to have access to higher education, and highly educated people who are involved in my community and work study/internship experiences that are laying the foundation for my future. Whitworth has deeply shaped me academically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Thank you for helping fund this opportunity. ICWashington.org/stories

The opportunity to go to school has helped me to change my life. I have gone from being homeless and addicted to drugs, to having hope of a new future. To those that have kept funding for college available I wish to thank you for your efforts. You have really made a difference in my life and so many others. Thank You!

I am very grateful for all the funding I have received. Scholarship programs such as the Federal Pell Grant and the WA State Need Grant demonstrate a lot of trust in the character of the grantee, and they assume that the recipient will go on to become a productive member of society. I have every intention of finding ways to repay that debt. More All-Stars at ICWashington.org/stories

Thank you. There are no other words that I can give, because I don’t have them. My life would be completely different without access to the funds that you provide for students like me. More All-Stars at ICWashington.org/stories

Thanks to financial aid, I am equipping myself with the tools to be an effective leader and make positive change. Thank you for financial aid! I want to go back to Tacoma or a similar place and give back to my community just as my community gave to me!

My dad’s highest education is the third grade; my mom’s highest education is the sixth grade. Tradition doesn’t stop those individuals with a hope of an education from going to college. Thanks to financial aid I will get an education.

For me, getting my financial aid letter my senior year of high school was more satisfying than recieving my acceptance letters, because it meant I could actually go where I wanted to go. Grants and loans are a huge portion of how I pay for my tuition at Whitworth and I am extremely thankful and blessed for all the financial aid I have recieved.
