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.”

Elsa Chávez is a first-generation college student majoring in political science and Spanish.
