“The scholarship funds allowed me to go to school over the summer.  I needed two more classes in order to apply for the major, but they were constantly full.  Attending summer quarter this year enabled me to take these classes, which led to my acceptance into the major.  It is taking me longer than originally anticipated to complete this degree, and your scholarship encourages met to keep going.” Joe Hausman
