This week we’d like to thank Nourish supporters Mary Laurie and Joe Cece for their generous gift to fund the inaugural year of the Bridge Scholars Program this year. The Bridge Scholars program is designed to provide Nourish students with the opportunity to have a greater impact on global poverty. We believe that qualified and dedicated Nourish students should be able to participate in a Nourish Project regardless of their financial situation.
Mary Laurie and Joe invested in this high impact program that gives scholarships to students with demonstrated financial need who have displayed excellence in their Nourish Chapter.
“I have always wanted to travel abroad and make a difference in others’ lives but it always seemed a bit out of my reach. When I heard about the project this summer to the Dominican Republic, I was ecstatic to help, but ultimately concerned about how I was going to fund my trip. Thanks to the Bridge Scholarship I can now intern abroad and work towards making a lasting impact on a community in need.”
– Jackie (UF Chapter member and 2013 Bridge Scholar)
During this season of thankfulness, we would like to thank Mary Laurie and Joe Cece for funding this program and providing exceptional student leaders with the opportunity to truly make a difference in the world.
