Alumna creates scholarship for support services

Clare Shaw ’14 and the Shaw Family Foundation have established The Shaw Scholarship for the Institute for Achievement and Learning (IAL) to provide annual scholarships to students for support services.

This year, 20 students—who otherwise could not afford IAL services—were awarded scholarship assistance to pay for two semesters of support. Each student enrolled in the institute receives an individualized learning plan created from a menu of support services.

Clare Shaw, a preschool teacher in Atlanta, Georgia, hopes this gift will inspire other alumni to step forward and give back to their alma mater. “I am a recent graduate of Lynn University who used the services provided by the Institute for Achievement and Learning. It is important to me and my family to give back where we see a need. There are students who could excel academically by taking advantage of the support services provided by the IAL, but they can’t afford to pay for it. This scholarship will help them succeed.”

Lucas Cartwright, class of 2018, is a recipient of The Shaw Scholarship. In a letter to Clare Shaw, he wrote, “I am so thankful for this scholarship. . . Because of this, I am more focused to push myself to work even harder, knowing I am on the right path. I hope one day that I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.”
