Paige Gallant 

Paige is a recipient of the Kyle B. Dotson and AIHF scholarships. Burdened with additional medical expenses, with little left to set aside for education, these scholarships have helped relieve her financial difficulties tremendously.

Debt has been a considerable burden for me over the last few years as I was born with a permanent disability called spina bifida – a neurological disorder that has greatly affected my health in various ways. Despite having good healthcare, my disability costs a considerable amount every year for specialized medical treatments and supplies. Therefore, this award will ultimately relieve some of my financial stress so that I can focus solely on my studies. I am so grateful for people like you that understand the hardships of students and express your empathy through gifts that truly make a difference.

Paige’s story was featured in the SynergistNOW blog. Learn more about her journey.

“Professionally and academically, my dreams are possible because of donors like yourself. It is because of you that I can continue at the doctoral level. It is because of you that I do not have to take out loans. It is because of you that I push myself to my limits, until the breaking point, then build even more. Your commitment and generosity will never go unseen. I do hope you continue to fund the dreams of others, as you are greatly funding mine. It is my intent to make you proud, and show you what these scholarships will do for me, the roads they will forge for me, the knowledge they will allow me to obtain, and most importantly – help our customer, the worker.”
