Through the Forever Forward Scholarship, these scholarships will be made available to students into perpetuity.

Why Forever Forward Legacy?

The College of Education Alumni Board recognizes the need for a self-sustaining fund to provide educational support through scholarships to students in the College of Education into perpetuity. The name, Forever Forward, was developed and chosen with that in mind. As College of Education alumni drive teaching, learning, health and wellness in their communities and the world that can also be reflected supporting of future leaders in education and kinesiology. As an alumnus or a friend of the college, you can forever impact the lives of countless students by supporting the Forever Forward Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund.

Who created Forever Forward Legacy?

Today’s students need educators who understand how to prioritize all aspects of teaching and learning with attention to health and wellness, building strong communities and care of the environment. Scholarship support for students will better allow them to prioritize those needs for themselves, so they can model and have the space they need to adapt and develop innovative strategies they can carry into their future classrooms. As a 1st-generation college student and former 5th-year scholarship recipient, I can attest to how great this financial support can impact the ability to deeply reflect upon and gain from an educational experience. For this reason, I am now working to pay it forward… forever!
