b'More than 2,000 undergraduate students at Marshall University start each year with a deficit of approximately $8,212 after taking all need-based aid offered to them in the form of grants and loans. They are faced with climbing what must seem like an insurmountable mountain, earning with their own hard work, talent and drive, one merit-based, privately-funded and/or community-based scholarship at a time. BECAUSE OF YOUR CONTINUING KINDNESS, EACH OF THEM IS ABLE TO AFFORD THEIR DREAM OF ATTENDING MARSHALL UNIVERSITY.'
