We wish all of our students the very best, whether it's your first year at college or your last year at college and we hope that The Leo Adler scholarship has made your college life easier for you.
Well I think summer has finally hit!! I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July and that you are staying cool and hydrated!! The scholarship Award/Denial emails are going out to all applicants. We had 275 applicants this year and it takes time to notify each student as the award/denial emails are sent at one at a time as no two students are a like and the award amounts vary and are private for the eyes of that student alone. I have received a few emails today with students wanting to know why their friends received an email and not them, well the reason is above, 275 individual emails does take time, so please be patient, enjoy summer as you do have plenty of time to accept the award. Before you know it, it will be time to pack up and head back to school.
