No one can describe the experience of Spencer’s undergraduate scholarship recipients better than the students themselves.

If you ever thought your donations didn’t mean anything or that they went to unmotivated students, let me ease your anxiety and speak for every recipient and say your contributions are more than appreciated – they are making a difference. I hope you continue to support the Spencer Foundation whose mission is so critical to obtaining a college education.
