Current OTA Student, '19

By awarding me the HWRI scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I can not thank you enough for helping me get a professional degree.

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
