Meet past FWMTF Intern Scholars

Prior to being awarded this scholarship, I was juggling a myriad of things within my personal, academic, and pre-professional (internship) life … When I received the Intern Scholarship, it really had a major positive effect on my mental and emotional health and alleviated so many of my stressors!

“With the scholarship, I have been able to look towards future goals and needs such as graduate school and my living expenses during that time. By this time next year, I hope to have started a graduate degree program with my (soon to be service) dog Monty by my side–and this was all made more possible with FWMTF’s help.”

I cannot adequately express our gratitude for your financial generosity and your generosity of spirit.”
