Scholarship Campaign Continues

Published: September 20, 2016

CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University's successful Inspire Awesome scholarship campaign, designed to raise money for EWU students, has received a major boost to kickoff the 2016-17 academic year.

Eastern President Mary Cullinan announced during her annual State of the University Address that Spokane Teachers Credit Union (STCU) has committed to match all faculty and staff scholarship contributions this year up to $25,000.

This inspirational pledge comes on the heels of a successful campaign last year that brought in 1,466 gifts from faculty and staff, generating $150,000 in new scholarship funds for students. Overall last year, the university raised $1.89 million for student scholarships.

During her speech, President Cullinan challenged the university community to help meet her goal of raising $2 million in scholarship funds this academic year. She emphasized the importance of helping students succeed through financial support. This is why the Inspire Awesome campaign is a key aspect of her Graduation Project, a key university initiative designed to better serve students.

For more information on the matching gift challenge, please visit the faculty/staff match website or call the Office of Alumni Advancement at 509.359.4550.
