This fall, thanks to the generosity of MWSU Ambassadors members, supporters and a gift from the W. Fairleigh Enright Family Foundation, $16,825 in scholarships were awarded to 20 nontraditional students.

Through their work to support nontraditional students (aged 25 and older), the Ambassadors award scholarships and mini grants for equipment, supplies and other items necessary to complete coursework.

The group raises funds through Thanksgiving tributes and their annual fundraiser, Night at the Ritz. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event was canceled, but the group is hopeful they will be able to conduct the event in some form this coming year.
