Vancouver Campus Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) student Shelley Walker shares how the Emergency Response Scholarship Fund has helped support her and many other students facing financial challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This has been a tough year—COVID-19 shook many of us to the core and has changed our lives [in ways] both big and small,” Walker said. She shared her gratitude for the donors who have and will contribute to the relief fund to help students continue on their paths to become socially responsible practitioners.
“Today, more than ever, we need ethical practice, we need social justice, and we need to help change the world,” Walker said.
Thanks to our generous donors and funding from the U.S. CARES Act, Adler University has given over $600,000 in emergency scholarships to our students across all three campuses since May 2020. Help support more students this Giving Tuesday by making a gift to the Emergency Response Scholarship Fund.
