“Higher education is a key to success in life. Without our universities, that road becomes very narrow. As the first in my family to graduate from college, I know the personal and financial struggles I endured to graduate; it was tough. The scholarships and aid that are offered to students are a lifeline for their success.” – Bernie Coston, Marshall alumnus and donor

Artifacts of Appreciation
“I was ecstatic to find out that someone had taken an interest in me and wanted to see me accomplish my goal. Everything, without receiving a scholarship in my earlier years at Marshall from maintaining my coursework and extra-curricular activities, would have been difficult. Scholarships have provided some financial incentive and provided me with a peace of mind with affording school.” -Malik Q. Smith, Civil Engineering, Class of 2021
