Why your gift matters
“The Bailey Scholarship Program has always sought to develop student leaders who will contribute to the solution of the world’s problems and to financially assist those same students whose academic progress will be aided by receiving the financial award. The newly approved changes in the Bailey Scholarship Program will ensure that this mission continues to be creatively and thoughtfully embraced in the future.”
Former Director, Bailey Scholarship
After more than two decades as the University Y Program Director, Ed Nestingen took on the responsibility of serving as the Director of the Bailey Scholarship program until his retirement in 1991.
Throughout his tenure, Ed was single minded in his focus on helping students develop as leaders who would have an impact on the problems facing their community and our world. Although in his mid-nineties, Ed continues to preach the importance of helping these students meet the skyrocketing cost of higher education.
As a past Bailey Scholar, you understand more than most the importance and value of these scholarships and the difference it can make in whether or not a student stays at the University. We hope you can help continue and strengthen the legacy of the Bailey Scholarship by paying back those who helped you with a donation to help those who will follow in your footsteps.
We appreciate any support you can give and wish you the best in 2011.
Thank you for your contribution.
