"Words cannot describe how thankful I am for you generous donations. Any amount is enough to keep a student in school and give them the hope and encouragement to keep going. Your donation says to me: ‘I support you in pursuit of your dreams even if no one else does’, and that can mean so much to a student in need.”

Hilary Dunn"Being offered this scholarship has been a tremendous blessing in my life in the sense that it allows me the freedom to further my education and pursue my passions. Since coming to Western, I have met many incredible people and have had so many opportunities to excel and grow, both academically and as a person. As I pursue a career in medicine, I am so grateful for the support I am receiving from many generous people, and I am thrilled to continue my education so that I may more effectively serve others."

Allison Farrell“I am very excited to be part of the Supply Chain Management program. I learned so much both in the classroom and externally in world-class business organizations. Because of this program, I have had the opportunity to work as a summer intern for two Fortune 100 companies to further apply the skills and theories I have learned in the classroom. I continue to be impressed with how my professors share their hands-on knowledge and experiences in the classroom which makes us better prepared for the workforce. I am proud to be part of a program that is only one of three programs of its kind in the State of Illinois, and one of only 39 programs nationally which is accredited by the world’s premier business accrediting body. The learnings and opportunities have allowed me to expand my learning beyond the school setting and well positioned me to pursue my professional goals following graduation.”
