Grant Spotlight: Student Financial Aid

November 21, 2017 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

Providing access to every opportunity MLWGS has to offer is one of the most important goals of the Foundation.  To that end, we made $20,000 available for students in financial need in the 2017-18 school year.  Over the past few months, we’ve been able to cover big expenses, like student fees, as well as a number of smaller expense like club dues, a homecoming ticket, and the purchase of a yearbook.  Those expenses also include the cost of attending the art department’s field trip to DC and SAT reporting fees for a student who qualifies for fee waivers but is applying to more schools than they have waivers.  If you think your student could benefit from student financial aid from the Foundation, please contact Dr. Wendy Ellis.  The school administration screens all requests, and the identity of the student is always kept confidential.  Donations to the 2017-18 Annual Fund make this all possible.  Help support all MLWGS students by making a gift of any size today.
