"Affording college was one of my main struggles when choosing a school to attend. My scholarship is helping to make college more affordable as a first-generation college student."

Major: General Agriculture

"I sincerely thank all of the donors that sponsor the DSU Foundation scholarships. Thanks to the scholarships I received, I will not have to pay out of pocket for my education, which takes a great deal of stress off of me and my family. I can better focus on completing my degree on time, a goal I have been working toward since I entered DSU as a freshman in 2018."
