The Class of 1985 Travel Abroad Scholarship

The Class of 1985 Travel Abroad Scholarship

At the Class of 1985’s 25th reunion, alumni at the reunion established a scholarship fund to help first generation college students fulfill their dreams of being the first in their family to get a degree. This commitment was made to support the best and brightest students who might otherwise find it cost prohibitive to further their education at Westfield State. The Class of ’85 Reunion Committee has been quoted saying “we believe this is very fitting considering a large majority of our class were also first generation college students and we hope to impact future Westfield State students by enabling them to make a difference in the world in a similar manner that many of us have done.”

Impact

“Traveling in different places will immerse me in different ways of life and help me to understand societies deeper than I ever could in a book.”
