Hear from some of the students who have been positively impacted through the scholarship programs of The Merry Makers Club Foundation.

This scholarship is a blessing, and I am grateful for
it. It will enable me to focus solely on my studies
without the need to work extra shifts at the hospital.
My goal is to become an advocate for people and be
the representation needed to improve healthcare.

The financial support I have received has made my
educational journey in the United States possible,
turning my dream of excelling in fencing while simultaneously obtaining a university
education into a reality.

Matthew Buelau

Thank you so much for me believing in me
and granting me this scholarship which
was truly a timely gift. I accept this gift
with much gratitude and honor from your
esteemed association that is such a pillar in
the community.

I want to personally thank the donor of this
scholarship, I realize that school is expensive and
receiving this helps me get closer to my goal and
takes the weight of some financial burden off of
my shoulders.
