I am a freshman at St. Bonaventure, pursuing a double major in history and psychology, and I am involved in a number of clubs and activities.
I am on the club rugby team, which won the state championship and earned a spot in the national playoffs; I joined Embrace it Africa, a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged students in Bethlehem, Uganda; I am in Bonacoustics, the a capella group on campus; and I tutor two juniors in history.
I love the size of this campus. It's easy to get to know people and professors well. I'm still somewhat undecided, but I think I want to join a Peace Corps-like organization for a few years and then go to law school to study minority rights. I would love to be able to help people who really need it.
I am grateful that there are people like you who donate to help students pay for college. Thank you so much for your gift.

I am a sophomore pre-med major and have already been accepted into LECOM Medical School through St. Bonaventure's Franciscan Health Care Professions Program. It's what brought me to St. Bonaventure. That and the fact that both of my parents are graduates. St. Bonaventure is the first school I looked at.
I captain the men’s club soccer team and I play intramural soccer and volleyball.
I really feel as though I can accomplish anything here. My goal is to become an orthopedic surgeon and eventually own my own practice. I would never be able to accomplish any of that without your scholarship donation.
Thank you very much for this scholarship. Without it, there is no way I could fulfill my dream and reach my goal in life. This really means a lot to me and I can’t thank you enough for what you have done.
