Political Science and Ivey HBA
My name is Rohan and I am a fourth year student at Huron studying Political Science. I am writing to you today to ask you to consider making a gift to Huron’s Leaders with Heart Scholarship Fund. Donations directed to this fund will be matched by Huron, resulting in twice the financial impact on our students.
My parents taught me the importance of a generous spirit, compassion, and to always express gratitude for the gifts life has given me. When I received a major scholarship from Huron it affirmed for me that people are kind and good and that Huron donors are looking out for my well-being and helping me on my way.
The potential impact that Huron’s Leaders with Heart Scholarship Fund can have on students like me is significant. I am a first-generation student and my parents provided me with everything I needed growing up – but I always knew I would be on my own for my education costs and have worked hard to ensure I will graduate with the least amount of debt possible.
Thankfully, due to financial support, I, like many other Huron students, have been able to focus on my studies and get involved with extracurricular activities such as the Huron University College Students’ Council, the Marketing Club, and Plan International. In addition, I held a Centre for Undergraduate Research Learning Fellowship. These experiences have taught me the importance of a well rounded education and provided the opportunity for me to be a Leader with Heart.
Due to receiving my scholarship at Huron, I know exactly what it feels like to have a financial burden at least partially lifted. It’s freedom and room to breathe. I would love for more of my friends to know this feeling, too.
I truly hope you will consider making a gift to the Leaders with Heart Scholarship Fund and what a difference your contribution can make for current and future students. For me, it made all the difference in the world.
