Tiny T-Bird Scholarship
Tiny T-Bird Scholarship
A Note from SUU First Lady, Kathy Wyatt

The Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Hope has been in operation for eight months now, and this past spring the Center enrolled 69 children in child care with an additional 33 children enrolled in preschool. Reliable childcare is critical for student-parents but the cost can be an obstacle for students. With this in mind, the Tiny T-Bird Scholarship was created to assist students with families by reducing their concern about paying for child care while they pursue their college education.
