Thank you, Donors!

We appreciate the generous contributions donors give to the FHSU Foundation to make study abroad and other opportunities available to students.

"Having donor assistance impacted my travel experience because it helped take away some of the stress of planning and preparing for the trip. As as college student, I am responsible for paying for all my bills myself; I don't depend on my parents to provide for me. I know that there are numerous college students in the same type of situation. So, paying for this trip came from my own pocket, meaning it wasn't something that my parents just provided. This trip has been a goal of mine for a long time, so I worked extra hours to make it possible. Picking up extra hours like that can cause damage to my focus on my classes, so it was difficult to make sure that I didn't slack of lose focus on my classes because that can be detrimental to my education. I know having to pay for a trip like this yourself quickly cuts several students from being able to embark on this opportunity. Having donor assistance opens up the opportunity to more students so that they can grow from the experience of the trip. There were times that I thought I was going to have to withdraw from going on the trip because I wasn't going to be able to afford it, but having the donor assistance made it possible for me to still go on the trip and I am thankful that I had that help to make this goal of mine a reality."
