Giving Makes a Difference

Why We Give

Honoring Kent & Barbara Chaplin

Giving Changed My Life
Receiving this scholarship made me believe I can take chances.  Today I hold a leadership position in our student government and have pursued other opportunities because I have gained the courage and confidence to do so.  The Alumni Scholarship pays for expenses the Husky Promise doesn’t cover. For me, that’s housing.  UW Bothell has done so much for me; I look forward to the day I can give back.Marlene Manzo, Class of 2014
