Adult Scholarship Testimonials

Learn What the Adult Scholarship Means to our Scholars

“The Adult Scholarship has meant that others believe in me and my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse (RN). To have the personal and financial support of The Community Foundation of Macon County is humbling. My family has had to go down to one income while I am attending Millikin University full-time. Having this scholarship is less money that will need to be taken out in student loans and will reduce my debt once I am out of school”

“The Community Foundation of Macon County Adult Scholarship has been an enormous blessing to me. It means the world to me that someone would take the time and resources to invest in my future. In a world full of people who do things for gain, I find it inspiring to know that there are generous people who are willing to help others on their journey. For me the Adult Scholarship has meant that I am not alone, and that I don't have to do it on my own.”

“This scholarship has meant so much to me. This scholarship gave me the opportunity to go back to Millikin and get my teaching certificate so I can pursue my dream of becoming an elementary school teacher. This is a goal I have wanted to achieve since I started my working career and just have not been able to achieve due to financial reasons. I have worked many jobs with youth in the community and really wanted to take that next step. Millikin has a great evening program that helps me be able to go back to school and get my teaching certificate while working full-time.”
