"The reason I can attend Lawrence is because I am a recipient of a few scholarships. These scholarships are due to the generosity of donors. I know I speak not only for myself, but on behalf of many others, thank you! Getting a liberal arts education is really underrated. The diverse environment, and the wide range of classes we take really equips us with great problem-solving skills. Thank you for allowing myself and others this great opportunity to attend Lawrence."

“I am very thankful for donor's support! Without donors, I would not be able to pursue my educational goals at a prestigious school like Lawrence.  I especially think it is so important when alumni decided to give back.  It is essentially them paying forward the knowledge, opportunities and experiences that they were so fortunate to have when they were students.”

“The Tom and Julie Hurvis Scholarship has aided me financially and taken financial stress off paying for college. My sister and I are experiencing college together, which has been a blessing. The scholarship has greatly helped us pursue our academic interests without being held back.” Marelis Alvarez ’24

“The Tom and Julie Hurvis Scholarship has always been an opportunity to complete a degree with as little of the financial burden and stress that comes with pursuing higher educational degrees. This opportunity allows me to develop an education that I would not have been able to develop, in the way in which I wanted to, without it.” —Meralis Alvarez-Morales ’22
