Help Students be
EWU students face new struggles in this changing world. Unexpected financial and personal challenges have made it even harder to stay in school. Now, more than ever, our students need your help to stay Eagle Strong.
With a gift to the Eagle Strong Scholarship Fund, or any scholarship fund that is meaningful to you, you’ll strengthen student resolve. With your support, today’s students will power through adversity to become the future workforce business and industry need.
If you are a new donor or haven’t made a gift to EWU recently, our friends at the Krumble Foundation have an exciting challenge just for you!
Now through July 1, 2021, the Krumble Foundation will match qualifying donations made to any student scholarships, including the Eagle Strong Scholarship. The dollar-for-dollar match will be made with a donation to the Soaring Eagle Scholarship Fund, which the foundation established, up to $250,000.
This unique opportunity will allow you to see your money go even further, and help more students remain Eagle Strong.
As of This Week, 411 Eastern alumni and friends have been counted in the Krumble Foundation Challenge Match!

The Impact: Ashleigh is Learning to Program Lifesaving Robots
Right now, EWU students need help to cover tuition, new technologies and living expenses.
To make ends meet, Ashleigh Sanford, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering, lives with her mom and works for a local fabrication company—while maintaining a 3.75 GPA. Scholarship support keeps her going.
“My scholarship means so much to me because they recognize my integrity and the 110 percent I put into school. It makes it that much more worth doing all of the hard work.” –Ashleigh Sanford
Ashleigh’s career goal is to program cooperative robots—like the ones that assist medical professionals with precise surgeries. Your support means more students, like Ashleigh, reach their goals.
The Impact: Lorren is Preparing for Med School
When you are counted in the Krumble Challenge, you will help students like Lorren Morgan complete their education and start a career. Lorren earned one of the Krumble Foundation’s inaugural Soaring Eagle Scholarships because of his grit and hard work.
Lorren has been pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor since high school. Now a senior in the Biology Department’s Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Program, he’s making the Dean’s List every quarter while completing multiple rigorous lab-based science classes. He is thankful for the financial assistance so that he can focus on preparing for medical school.
“Thank you for your confidence in me. I work hard to achieve my academic goals and I will make you proud.”
Lorren aspires to become an ophthalmologist and hopes to conduct vision retainment research—an ambitious goal that might not have been possible without the help of donors like you.
