The Ouimet Scholarship has positively impacted my life financially. I am the oldest of two siblings who are twins and entering college in the fall 2021. This scholarship has taken the financial burden off not only me but also my parents and I truly cannot express enough gratitude for what The Fund has done for me and my family. Thank you!

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship gave me an amazing opportunity to further my interest in my major at Bates College, and I was fortunate enough to receive an internship through the career portal. I interned at Baystate Financial for the summer of 2021 thanks to the Ouimet network, and words cannot describe how fortunate I am to be a part of it. Without this scholarship, I would have had a much more difficult time trying to find a job, especially coming out of a pandemic. Thank you!

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has helped me a lot, especially with the cost of my education. The scholarship has reduced the financial impact of school by helping me afford my books, materials, and rent. Earning the scholarship has also motivated me, knowing that such an incredible foundation supports my academic career. Thank you!

Without the Ouimet Scholarship, I would not have been able to pursue my academics at Seton Hall University. The financial support has been integral to giving me a foundation to pursue higher education along with professional development. With the flexibility provided to me by The Fund I have been able to expand my engagements at Seton Hall and be an active servant leader on campus. I hope to be involved in as many Ouimet speaking engagements as possible and keep giving back. Thank you!

Mohamed, Seton Hall University, 2023Winchester Country Club

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has positively impacted my life in terms of financial support and unique networking opportunities. The financial impact the Ouimet Scholarship has had on my college experience is nothing shy of tremendous, while the networking opportunities are comparable to no other. I look forward to meeting even more remarkable individuals at future events and appreciate The Fund for supporting me. Thank you!

Catherine, UMass Amherst, 2022George Wright Golf Course

Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship has had a significant impact by helping me afford my education. My future career as a Physician Associate requires five years of education which can be very expensive, and it is because of The Fund that I am able to continue my education and become a PA. My future career is in a field which gives me the opportunity to give back, the same way The Fund does. Thank you!

Summer, Saint Francis University, 2024The Ridge Club

The Ouimet Scholarship has significantly impacted me through its financial aid and career resource opportunities. Receiving the Ouimet Scholarship enabled me to focus more on schoolwork and less on paying for college, allowing me to make the dean’s list three consecutive semesters. In addition to the financial benefit, the meaningful connections I’ve made with Ouimet donors has helped guide me to where I am today. Thank you!

Travis, University of New Hampshire, 2022Salem Country Club

When deciding on which college I would attend at the end of my high school career, I was aware that the College of the Holy Cross was by far the most prestigious institution to which I was granted admission; however, it was also the most expensive option and the only school that I did not receive much financial aid from. Fortunately, the Ouimet Scholarship Fund has continuously acknowledged my hard work and made the once seemingly monumental loans I would have to repay after college much more manageable and realistic. This is an act of kindness that is remarkably encouraging to my post-grad outlook, and I am eternally thankful. Thank you!

Michael, College of the Holy Cross, 2022Charles River Country Club

Being a Ouimet Scholar is much more than just a financial opportunity to save money for college. It is a community I can use as a way to broaden my network and feel proud to be a part of. Being associated with The Fund has already led to meaningful conversations with club members, guests, and golf professionals and I am grateful to be part of the Ouimet Community. Thank you!

Daniel, Bentley University, 2023Oakley Country Club

Being a Ouimet Scholarship recipient has been immensely helpful in my life. Each year at Clark University, the administration has raised tuition, continuing to do so even during the economic recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has greatly affected my financial situation. The Ouimet Fund has been a lifeline throughout my college career, both through their financial assistance awards and through their networking events. I will be forever grateful to the Ouimet Scholarship Fund and its members for their unwavering support and generosity. Thank you!

Alison, Clark University, 2022Belmont Country Club

The Francis Ouimet Scholarship has not only blessed me financially, but it has also benefited me in terms of career resources. The Fund helped me attain my current summer internship because one of the interviewers was both a Providence College Alumni and married to a former Ouimet Scholar. This connection allowed her to gain a greater understanding of me as a person and feel more comfortable in her decision to accept me as her summer intern. Thank you!

Matthew, Providence College, 2023Dedham Country and Polo Club

The Ouimet Scholarship has holistically improved my college career. The financial assistance that is so kindly provided has allowed me to work less and study more, lifting a great weight off my shoulders. I also found the Dale Carnegie training incredibly beneficial and have been using the skills they taught me in interviews. Thank you!
