Champlain College scholarship recipients reflect on what our donors generosity has meant to them

" A few days ago I wasn't sure if I was even going to be attending Champlain College. To say the least, I was devastated. After communicating with the Financial Aid staff, I will now be able to attend Champlain College. When I found out, my mother and I were crying in excitement. Without the aid Champlain has provided me, I would be in a tough position. Thank you Champlain!"

"With the institutional aid I have received, I am able to afford going to Champlain all four years, study abroad, and leave my single-parent father with enough college funds for my younger brother."

" I chose Champlain College for its prestige and generous aid and support for the students who can't pay for college. I am the first person in my family to go to college and I am very grateful that Champlain College has given me a chance to continue my studies. I chose Legal Studies as my major because I want to know the legal systems and most important of all, the meaning of justice. I want to know how Americans define justice and the use of it. I could never find justice in the place where I came from. ....My personal goals that I have set for my years at Champlain are to study hard, experience college life, and make my family and the college proud of me. I am very positive that Champlain will help me achieve all these goals and many more.

" I have always loved computers, but I never dreamed of pursuing a degree because of financial constraints.  When my daughter was born, people I knew started to tell me about a program for single parents at Champlain College and they recommended that I look into it.  To be honest, I never dreamed I would find myself here today, a member of that program, well on my way to a degree in computer technology."

"Champlain College has helped me in a lot of ways financially, they have given me scholarships, grants, and loans that I was able to take out that had the lowest interest rate.  I chose Champlain because I love to teach children.  I have had a lot of bad teachers that discouraged me from learning; I want to be a role model to students and a teacher that students remember as the one that inspired them the most. I chose Champlain because their education department is very hands on.  ....I studied abroad in Dublin Ireland and it was the best experience of my life.  Champlain made it so easy to do and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone."
