Give to the First Generation Scholarship Fund
Congratulations to our 335 graduates from the Edwards College!
All of us in the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts are so proud of our graduates. You persevered during some extraordinary times, and we know you will make all of us very proud. With a degree from our Edwards College, you are ready for the next step in your lives, and I know that great things await you.
In order to celebrate your accomplishments and to give a little support to the incoming class of Edwards College Chants, I invite you to a scholarship fundraising competition. If each one of you donates $10, we can easily raise three $1,000 scholarships, each for an incoming freshman who is a first-generation college student. I am challenging the faculty and the members of the Board of Visitors for the Edwards College to match the amount you raise for this important goal. It would be so wonderful if you could lend a hand to a future student of the Humanities and Fine Arts, in particular one who will be the first in their family to attend college. Your support will ensure that they too may learn and grow through the Edwards College experience.
I thank you for your support because any contribution, regardless of how little or large, will make a big difference in a future student’s life. My most heartfelt congratulations to all of you again, and thank you!
