Matching Grant Helps Fund SMU’s First Generation Initiative

Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN has raised $250,000 for First-Generation Initiative scholarships in 2012 partly thanks to a generous matching grant from Jack and Mary Ann Remick.

In January, the Remicks gifted the university a $100,000 matching grant to raise funds for the First-Generation Initiative. This program provides full scholarships and support to low-income, high-potential, qualified students, with preference given students at Lasallian schools.

By early April, the university met the $100,000 challenge and surpassed it, bringing the current total to approximately $250,000.
