Jessica LaLonde Headshot

The scholarship I received from Case Western Reserve was absolutely critical in my decision to attend CWRU over other schools I applied to—as well as being able to attend college at all. The scholarship really made the difference between just hoping for an education that could change my future and real options to make that happen."
