I was privileged to receive the Gateway Woods Scholarship while I was completing my undergraduate work. The financial assistance was certainly helpful but even more so, receiving the scholarship encouraged me to press forward toward pursuing a degree in counseling. I look back and feel very blessed to have received this scholarship and believe the Lord used it to help pay for tuition and direct me forward.

Brian (Scholarship Recipient)

My wife and I had just got married and were going back to Graduate School for the fall semester when we received a scholarship from Gateway Woods. We had been praying for financial provision in the form of a scholarship or a tuition waiver and God answered our prayers through Gateway Woods by providing us the scholarship we needed to pay our tuition bills! I am thankful for the Lord's work through Gateway Woods, not only in what they've done for us, but for their faithful ministry.

Ty (Scholarship Recipient)

I was entering my last year of graduate school and due to a required internship, I was not eligible for a tuition waiver from my University. This meant, of course, that I would be paying for the whole year out of pocket. That's when I received a scholarship from Gateway Woods that helped me significantly. I am so thankful to the Lord for His provision and for Gateway Woods!
