While our application is open, we’ve asked our current scholars and alumni to share why they’re happy they filled out the Pullman Foundation Scholarship application. It may seem like an extensive process (see our application page), but it is worth it. Catrina Patton, University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, ’11 (Pictured on the right), shares her reasons below.
I’m so glad that I was a part of the Pullman Scholar family! As a first generation, out-of-state college student, it was this family that really helped me adjust and do well in school. Pullman staff members regularly connected me with fellow scholars at my school, checked on me, helped me establish effective study habits, and provided resources that helped me thrive in school! If you are looking for a program that’s going to prepare you to succeed in college and make you an effective leader- then the Pullman scholarship is the way to go!

Applying for the Pullman scholarship made a huge difference in my life. Just before my senior year of high school, my father passed away, and I did not think I would be able to afford college. With help from the Pullman scholarship, as well as a few other scholarships, my college dream came true, and I was able to attend Marquette University. I will always be grateful to the staff at the Pullman Foundation who were generous enough to support me through college. I have had great experiences throughout my time at Marquette, but none of that would have been possible if it were not for the generosity of the Pullman Foundation. In addition to that, the Pullman Foundation has offered me amazing networking abilities with both current and former scholars. Each year I look forward to attending the annual symposium because I always learn something new and meet great people. I am so happy that I decided to apply for the Pullman scholarship because I know that this is an organization that I will be involved with throughout my life, and I cannot wait to give back and still remain involved with the Foundation even after graduation.
