So many different paths bring us to Carroll. So many different dreams drive us. We come from more than 30 states and more than 30 countries. But the Pioneer experience unites us. The Pioneer spirit lives within us all.
It lives within Jesus Montes. The sophomore from West Allis is driven to succeed in Carroll’s rigorous nursing program
and to begin a career in healthcare. But he says he wouldn’t be here without the financial aid
he has received. “Because of it, I’m able to attend the university of my choice to pursue my dream.”
And it lives within Jaellah Cimmone Jones, a first year student from northern Illinois. An avid reader, Jones is studying biology
as she takes aim at graduate studies in neuroscience. She is overjoyed to be at Carroll and is forever grateful for the financial aid support she has received. It shows that someone else believes in her, she says. “It shows me that hard work really does pay off.”
Our president, Dr. Cindy Gnadinger, believes strongly in making the Carroll experience accessible to all, regardless of their background. She created the Opportunity Scholarship Fund to provide a lifeline for those students from diverse backgrounds which are traditionally underrepresented in higher education and to help bridge that gap. With a contribution to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund, you’ll be actively supporting a more diverse campus—and helping Carroll fulfill its mission
