Scholarship fills financial gap

I would like to thank the Homer Foundation and the donor of the Alain and Daniel Rieser Scholarship for creating and awarding me a generous $3,000 scholarship for me to study at Soka University. Soka University is a small liberal arts college that emphasizes a global perspective in its curriculum. I have always been very interested in diverse cultures, and at Soka, I will be able to meet with students from many other countries and study new cultures.

I am very grateful for this scholarship because it fills the gap that my family and I would not be able to pay for. Going to Soka University has been my goal throughout my senior year, and now, after being accepted, I have been awarded money that has made it financially possible for me to attend Soka. It is very fortunate that the Homer Foundation exists and there are many generous donors in Homer.
