Opportunity@125 Seeks To Keep Doors Open For Ferris Students
No Ferris State University student should have to quit school because of a lost job or other economic hardship. To achieve that goal, President David Eisler announced today a capital campaign to raise $250,000 in grants to help students whose economic situation has changed since financial aid was awarded to them, the Grand Rapids Press reports. "We want to provide them with support if their finances change," Eisler said. "You think about the financial problems families are facing. We don’t want a student in his first, second or third year not coming because of that." The campaign "Opportunity@125," which marks Ferris’ 125th anniversary celebration, would provide scholarships during the next academic year.
