"I received a grant from the Foundation during my sophomore, junior and senior years of college. Not only did I decide to attend school out-of-state, but I also had the opportunity to study abroad my junior year. The decision to do both of those things, while definitely right for me at the time, unfortunately only added to the cost of financing my education. Consequently, I was very grateful to have been awarded the grants, as every little bit of aid helps along the way. There are a lot of students in the area who would make great candidates for these scholarships and grants too, but unfortunately, in a manner of speaking, the Foundation is one of the city's best kept secrets - a lot of people are just not even aware that it exists."
