In January, the Scanlan Foundation from Houston, Texas awarded the University of the Incarnate Word a $75,000 challenge grant for student scholarships. The grant was awarded on the important basis that UIW would use it to motivate others to give, and only those funds given in response to this matching grant should be used to meet the challenge. All donations given in response to the challenge, now through January 31, 2013, will be matched 100%, up to $75,000. This challenge presents the opportunity to raise a total of $150,000 in scholarship money for students who otherwise might not be able to afford a faith-based, quality education. We are very excited about the challenge and we truly hope YOU will help us reach this goal!
