We have established the Dreamworks Scholarship at NIU, which will assist students who demonstrate financial need entering the College of Business. When we meet our initial goal of $5,000, we have a donor that will match that amount, creating a $10,000 scholarship which will help deserving students achieve their goal of a college education at a time when scholarship money is harder to come by as they have not yet entered their major program.
We are Mason Bush, Jake Eggert, Tyler Gancarz, & Gabriella Lopez, all upper level students in the NIU College of Business. As part of our OM&IS 352 class, we were asked to select a project that had a positive impact on our community.
As a group, we decided to raise money to establish a scholarship for financially needy business students. This was an easy decision for us. It is because of both private and university scholarships that we are able to attend NIU, so creating a scholarship for someone following in our footsteps is important to us. We would like to help impact a student’s life in a pay it forward manner, while we are still students here.
Please consider making a contribution to help us reach our goal of $5,000. Any amount helps us move closer to achieving our goal and helping a student fund their college education.
