Student Leader Scholarship

Support a Student by Making a Donation Today!

In 2018, Sandean was a double major in kinesiology and psychology but was struggling to make ends meet while working and going to school. We hear this story way too often but instead of moving along with our own busy lives, we stopped, listened, and took action.

For so many first generation students, getting any additional financial aid is crucial to thrive in college. Sandean's story was our story. Four years later, we have raised over $22,000 and we are ready to do it again!! We can't do this without you, won't you make a donation today?
