“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

“Scholarships are a means of pursuing higher education and consequently opening dozens of doors that will inevitably allow me to be presented with opportunity that many minorities in this country wouldn’t have access to otherwise. Consequently, they are a liaison from the lessening of the financial burdens that cause young adults to repeat cycles of poverty and hardship which often disable them from being able to achieve more. Without the many scholarships available to me through Marshall, I could not give this testimony.” – Jarred Carter, Computer Science and Cyber Security, Class of 2022
