March Fund of the Month

Track and Explore Fund

The ASSIST (Anonymous Scholarship Support In Stressful Times) Fund was created by anonymous donors on January 9, 2009 in an effort to help Adrian College students who are in good academic standing, but are unable to stay at Adrian College because of an outstanding balance on their student account. The initial gift came from alumna who remembered that her mother was the recipient of a $50 scholarship back in the 1930’s. This scholarship was important because it not only helped her mother out financially, but gave her the reassurance that Adrian College believed in her as a student. This fund will provide assistance for students to return to Adrian College, register for classes, and continue work toward degree completion.

Since the first gift in 2009, hundreds of additional donors have generously stepped forward to support the ASSIST Fund. To date, over 450 students have received help from the ASSIST Fund. Said one recent student recipient in her thank you note, “I love Adrian College. Words can’t even begin to thank you enough for believing in me and other students who receive this great scholarship and get to stay at this wonderful College. I can’t wait to be in a position where I can do the same for future AC students.”
