Since its origination, the Heartland Scholarship Program has awarded 36 scholarships totaling $24,000 to Heartland members. “Over the years we’ve awarded these scholarships to members headed to college for the first time, to adults headed back to start a new career,” said Kathy Harrington, Heartland CEO/President. “We’re proud to help our members achieve their goal of higher education.”
Here are a few words from our winners:
Justin, from New Prague, MN:
Receiving this scholarship means a great deal to me both now and for my future. Not only does it show how my hard work and dedication in high school have earned me recognition, but it means that I will be able to achieve my academic goals in college, which will then set me up for a bright future when I enter the working world as an adult. All of this allows me to be a successful contributing member to our society.
Taylor, from Lonsdale, MN
This scholarship gives me the advantage of putting more time into my school work rather than trying to make the money to pay for school. Though it’s $500, it still helps me a tremendous amount! Thank you so much!
Nicole, from Inver Grove Heights, MN
Being a recipient of the 2017 Heartland Scholarship means so much to me, it will be of great assistance in assisting me in the pursuit of my education at Boston University. I cannot wait to continue my education at this institute and am so grateful for the next four years, thank you.
