Scholarships transform lives

Scholarships provide financial support and teach the importance of giving back.

Any combination of circumstances can hinder a student’s ability to afford a higher education. Some students work several jobs during their college years to pay for classes, books and housing.

While we applaud that industriousness, we also know it detracts from the time and concentration most students need to study. It’s hard to focus on schoolwork when monetary concerns are a constant worry.

Approximately 80 percent of Lynn University students receive some form of financial assistance. As state and federal aid face cuts, scholarships become ever more important.

Scholarships ease the financial burden, leaving more quality time to hit the books. They also instill a greater sense of belonging and motivation to make it through to graduation day.

A bonus for humanity: Scholarship recipients learn the importance of philanthropy and giving back. They know that without the kindness and generosity of others, a college degree likely would not have been possible. As a result, they tend to go on to be active, contributing members of society.

This article explores four scholarships, the benefactors who made them possible and the grateful 2018 and future graduates who received them: the Boca West Scholarship, the Jay and Marilyn Nelson Family Foundation Scholarship, the Ambassador Corps Scholarships and the American Dream Scholarship.
