Why It Matters

I was very shocked and I am grateful and blessed because this scholarship actually came at the perfect time when I needed it the most.

It allows me to explore many different avenues of creative expression that I never had the financial backing to do so.

Blake Chapman

Ball State University

I have one semester left at IU-Bloomington and it is going to pay for my entire semester.

Haley Jordan Begay

Indiana University

It helps me financially with school and tuition, but also putting on a resume for future internships interviews, it can help me in that aspect as well.

Grant Covey

I had to work four, part-time jobs to reach the amount of the scholarship and then some, so it helps a lot.
