Carroll University is the home of the Pioneers. This place is where students arrive from across the state, the region, the country and even the world. They come seeking their dreams. They come prepared to challenge themselves, to learn and to grow. They come because they already see something on the horizon. They come because they are Pioneers.
They are inspired, they are motivated, they are unique. And, for so many of them, the journey is not an individual undertaking. Ninety-eight percent of Carroll students receive some sort of financial aid. Carroll scholarships support Pioneers.
Emina Halilovic '17
The journey to Carroll from the battle-scarred streets of the small town in Bosnia where Emina was born has been long and incredible. The young refugee family settled in Waukesha and slowly began rebuilding their lives. But an exclusive private college education for their oldest daughter must have seemed impossible to Emina's parents. Fortunately, Carroll's admissions counselors recognize determination and grit when they see it - and Emina has that in spades. And now she also has financial aid, in the form of scholarships which make a Carroll education possible. You wouldn't turn away a pioneer, would you?
