Impact

When asked why creating this scholarship was important to him, Scott replied, “Creating this scholarship was important to me for several reasons, but primarily because I empathize with students who want to attend the University, have the academic qualifications to attend, but do not have the money. Establishing the scholarship was also important because the University and the College of Business provided me with the tools that enabled me to successfully compete in the work force, and I wanted to give others the same opportunity. Including diversity as a part of the scholarship’s criteria was important because I believe that a diverse student population improves the overall learning experience. In addition, a diverse student population provides different perspectives and creates a culture of tolerance and inclusion.”
