Past recipients have noted the significant impact the scholarship has made on their academic career: 

"I had an amazing first semester of college, I really enjoyed all of my classes. I am actually slightly disappointed to be done with them. I got to know my professors fairly well through visiting them at office hours which really helped me . . . I have had so many opportunities to try new things and have been very involved here . . . I have met so many people and have made many new friends. My first semester has been such an incredible experience and I am excited to begin my new classes after a relaxing break with family and friends.  Thanks for your support and Go Blue!" Lexi Wierenga, Class of 2015

"I've had opportunities for academic research and conference presentations on trends in higher education that expose me to  a range of advanced degrees and programs . . . In addition to these experiences, I have strived to uphold the academic standards set by the UM Club of GR . . . I remain very grateful for the financial assistance and attention I have received from the UM Club of GR." Will Hardenbergh, Class of 2013
