“It is fantastic to be able to focus on my studies in Civil and Environmental Engineering while not having to worry as much about paying for school. The Alworth Scholarship has made my studying at the University of Washington possible, and I am incredibly thankful for it.”
Joseph Harmon, 2008 Hermantown High School
“Coming from a rural Minnesota community, I thought it would never be possible to attend a private college but thanks to the Alworth Scholarship, I was able to do so and excel academically. In 2011, I graduated with a degree in Biology from the College of Saint Benedict and began medical school at UMD.”
Anna Stomberg, 2007 Blackduck High School
“I would not have been financially able to attend the University of Wisconsin and major in Food Science without the Alworth Scholarship. I am forever indebted to the foundation for giving me the opportunity to choose the school that was right for me. I owe that freedom to the Alworth.”
Lisa Rantala, 2006 Greenway High School
“This scholarship has had a huge impact on my financial and academic status. It has enabled me to spend all the time I need on school work. I have seen the grades of classmates slip because of scrambling to balance school and work. It is a relief that I will have virtually no debt upon graduating from UMD with a degree in Chemical Engineering.”
“This scholarship helped me graduate from Michigan Tech with two bachelor’s degrees in Statistics and Economics and a minor in French. Without this scholarship, I would not have been able to be as involved in as many extra-curricular activities, which I believe led to my current job offer.”
Joe Mattson, 2009 Duluth Central
