Scholarship essay contest winners announced by Office of Financial Aid

January 28, 2016

The Stephens College Office of Financial Aid recently awarded $500 in scholarships to three students selected on the merits of an essay application. Rachel Cooper, Gigi Kreibich and Erin Gately were named the winners of the contest and were presented with their scholarships immediately.  The essay contest focused on topics related to financial aid.

“I’m honored and excited to receive the financial aid essay scholarship and plan to put the funds toward professional clothing for interviews, so I can positively represent the incredible institution that is Stephens College,” said senior Rachel Cooper. 

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be selected as the recipient for the sophomore scholarship!” said Erin Gately, sophomore scholarship recipient.

Junior Gigi Kreibich wished to thank the Office of Financial Aid.

“Thanks to Financial Aid team for doing great educational work on managing college finances and making college possible for so many,” she said.

The scholarship was funded by a scholarship fund that the Stephens College Financial Aid team received after attending a meeting of the Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Professionals this Fall.

“We saw this as an excellent opportunity to give back to our students. Working with students and families to make Stephens College and a quality college education affordable is our calling and we know that every little bit helps,” said Kim Stonecipher-Fisher, director of Financial Aid.
