    Scholarship Recipient Testimonials

     These scholarships were very helpful in meeting the financial obligations of this program and providing some breathing room in my own family's budget. It was a pleasant surprise and great affirmation of the choice I made to pursue this program.”

                                        Scholarship Recipient
     This scholarship is of great assistance in covering the costs of my college education, and relieves some anxiety associated with two of my own children in college this next year plus me being in college. It is also a great example for my children about hard work and achievement.”

     The CSBO program through NIU and IASBO is one of the most effective programs in school business management. This scholarship has provided me the financial assistance needed to stay on track with my cohort and fulfill my goal of providing equitable resources to all students.”
