Congratulations to our scholarship winners!

Here is what a few recipients had to say about receiving a FaithLife Financial Scholarship:

Drew David, Hanover, ON

“I would like to thank FaithLife Financial for granting me this scholarship award to aid me in pursuing my studies as an Occupational Therapist at Western University in London, ON. The ability to pursue this career will allow me to help members of the community live purposeful and independent lives. I hope that I will be able to help make a positive difference in this world. I feel blessed with this opportunity and thank FaithLife Financial for providing me with this assistance, allowing me to pursue my dream.”

Melissa Kramp – Kitchener, ON

“I have chosen this field because it allows me to challenge myself and to use my knowledge and skills to help improve the lives of community members. I am currently accepted to University of Detroit Mercy to continue my education to complete my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene.  I am pursuing more education to allow myself to qualify for jobs in more areas such as teaching, health units and advocacy. Opening more doors for more career opportunities, I believe it will allow me to spread my wings to reach more people. I want to thank FaithLife Financial for the opportunity to help put this money towards the large expenses involved in doing my degree as an international student in the United States. I am looking forward to continuing my education and it feels amazing to be awarded this scholarship.”

Michael Vandewiel – Stratford, ON

“I am very thankful and honoured to have been chosen to receive this scholarship. The financial assistance is greatly appreciated in helping to reduce the financial stress of university and to better allow me to concentrate on my studies. I am grateful to FaithLife Financial for both recognizing and rewarding students who work hard to make a difference by volunteering in their community while balancing school academics, extracurricular activities and employment.”

 

One-time scholarships are awarded annually to a limited number of members pursuing a full-time undergraduate or graduate university degree or college diploma at any accredited institution – in or outside Canada.
