What's new this year?

This Giving Joy Day, we’re creating upward mobility for students facing a barrier.

Every Eagle starts their journey with a goal and a plan. But then “life” happens. The closer students get to graduation, the more financial barriers impact their ability to finish their degree and achieve their dreams.

The Eagle On initiative provides direct financial support for these hard-working students and empowers them to complete their degrees. By making a gift, you can be the boost that gets students over obstacles and on to a life of success and impact.

We are also celebrating a birthday!

All gifts help ensure our students keep flying!

The Impact of Gifts

“The scholarships I received made coming to EWU possible, as without them I probably would not be finishing up my last year right now. More than anything, these scholarships have significantly reduced the financial strain on my family and I. I have been blessed by the support of scholarship donors and my hope is that more students can continue to accomplish their academic goals here with scholarship help.”
