Aida Cannarsa Snow Endowment Fund fuels English major's passion

Aida Cannarsa Snow Endowment Fund

I was thrilled to be selected to receive a scholarship from the Aida Cannarsa Snow Endowment Fund!

I am a non-traditional student — an undergrad in my early 50s with a home and a family. I am an English major with a concentration in creative writing, having also completed a history minor. After being laid off from a 15-year career with a large bank in my mid-40s, I decided to go to school and pursue my passion for writing. After graduation I am interested in pursuing a creative writing MFA and eventually teaching and publishing.

I am honored to receive this assistance with my education.
