Whether you support scholarships, facilities, research experiences, athletics or academic programs, your gifts make a daily impact on Lawrence students. You do not have to take our word for it; you can hear directly from the students your support impacts.

“I am so incredibly thankful for the donors whose generosity is making it possible for me to be a student at such an amazing university. The scholarships and financial aid that I receive from Lawrence are giving me wonderful chances and opportunities, and I know that it is only from the generosity of donors that this is able to become a reality for me. I feel so indebted, and I hope that someday I can make a difference and give other people the opportunity to become a Lawrentian.”

“Before coming to Lawrence, I could not have imagined having the chance to delve so deeply into fascinating topics with my professors, getting my dream internship, or joining a sorority and holding leadership roles in Greek life.  Such opportunities have allowed me to learn and gain so much about myself and my studies during my time here so far.  I am inexplicably grateful to those whose gifts to the Lawrence Fund have greatly shaped the experiences of students like me.  Without this support, there would not be nearly as many wonderful opportunities for us grow and learn.”

“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
