Ladue News prominently features UMSL’s Finish Your Degree Scholarship
Just before his last semester at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, James Bragado had a tough decision to make.
Should he drop out before finishing his final few credits? Or should he get a full-time job while studying to compensate for the financial aid he could no longer receive due to credit limits?
Luckily, there was a third option: UMSL’s Finish Your Degree Scholarship.
The degree completion program provides deserving students with financial burdens the means to graduate. It is far-reaching with the goal of helping as many students as possible cross the education finish line.
The article follows Bragado, now the UMSL manager of annual giving, and Patrick Gadell, an alumnus who helped establish the Finish Your Degree Scholarship.
“UMSL gave me the chance to succeed and find out who I am, what my interests and strengths are, and prepared me for a career,” Bragado told Ladue News. “At UMSL, I got an affordable, quality education that helped me to realize my potential.”
