“I struggled with mental health all throughout high school
so despite my academic talent, I was never eager to plan a future for myself.
But now I am totally motivated and I’m so happy to be going to college and
starting my career. You guys (Northwest) have truly helped push me in the right
direction and I won’t let you down. I am extremely grateful.”
Meet Angelika, a 2023 Northwest Foundation Scholarship
Winner. For the past year, your Northwest Foundation has been expanding the
reach of its scholarship program by building closer relationships with
Champions for Children so that we meet students, like Angelika, who finished
school a year early with a 4.0 GPA, yet still might not have gone to college
without extra support.
After awarding Angelika her scholarship,
Northwest Foundation staff realized that as the first in her family to attend
college, she needed guidance to complete her financial aid application and
navigate the many administrative details associated with college registration.
While Angelika did all the work, the Northwest Foundation team was there to
help plan each step and reassure her that she was destined to succeed. She
begins classes on August 21st.
Your Northwest Foundation is able to provide the financial,
practical, and moral support to students like Angelika thanks to donations
to the Northwest Foundation by our members. Last month, we awarded $130,000
of scholarships to Angelika and 36 other amazing young scholars, many of whom
face the same barriers to starting and finishing college. As we said to
Angelika along the way, “Don’t be a stranger. We care as much about you
starting college as we do you finishing it.”
