Fundraised and awarded a pro-life Pregnant & Parenting Scholarship for student parent
With the guidance and assistance of the Leadership Institute, Jen Rumpf and the Pro-Life Aggies raised enough money to start a scholarship for pregnant and parenting students at Texas A&M to help support them financially in their decision to choose life for their unborn son or daughter.
On March 3, 2012, the first scholarship was awarded to a full-time A&M student who is raising her 2-year-old daughter on her own. The scholarship is $1000/semester and may be renewed.
“We desire to live out our Pro-Life convictions by supporting families that have chosen life in the difficult circumstance of being a college student,” says Jen. “The Pregnant and Parenting Student Scholarship shows that we love all of life, in the womb and out, and we want to help these families as much after birth as we do when the child is in the womb.”
The Leadership Institute did its part to help make this fundraising effort a success by suggesting revisions to their fundraising letter and sending the group's letter out to a list of donors in the Bryan-College Station and Houston area.
Jen and the Pro-Life Aggies hope the scholarship will spread to other campuses.
