Realizing dreams

Part of the Home School Foundation's mission of promoting homeschooling is to prepare the next generation of homeschoolers for the future. One of the ways we accomplish this is through the Patrick Henry College Scholarship Fund for Home School Legal Defense Association Members. Through this fund, we award scholarships to HSLDA member children on the basis of financial need, academic merit, and community service.

An HSF scholarship paved the way for California homeschool graduate Audrey Flowers to attend Patrick Henry College. The Flowers family joined HSLDA in 1990.
In 2004, HSF awarded nine scholarships to PHC freshmen. Each recipient already possessed many of the characteristics essential to succeeding at PHC; the Home School Foundation simply helped them surmount one of the final obstacles to attending: the financial challenge of affording a private college education on a single-income family's budget.

Audrey Flowers, a Government–Public Policy major, says, "Knowing that I wanted to study government narrowed the choices of colleges, but with the additional criteria of conservative and Christian, the choices almost disappeared. PHC was the school for me, so applying and being accepted was easy. The harder part was collecting enough money to afford it. The scholarship gave me a boost on finances, which gave me hope that I will be able to complete the degree."

For Amy Alexander, a Classical Liberal Arts major, attending PHC is a dream come true. "When I was in 8th grade, PHC was just starting. I eagerly followed the progress of the school, and every night for a year, I prayed that God would let me attend PHC."She adds, "I am very grateful to God and HSF for allowing me to realize my dream of attending PHC."

Bethany Barzee, another Public Policy major, thanks those who donated to the fund. She says, "The Homeschool Foundation's scholarship for PHC students has been such a blessing for my family. It has made the sometimes overwhelming experience of opening my tuition bill much less formidable by easing the financial burden of my college education. Thank you!"

From the director

If you would like to help homeschooled students realize their dreams, please consider a donation to the PHC Scholarship Fund for HSLDA Members. We will be awarding scholarships again in the spring of this year and hope to provide as many as 10 freshmen with tuition grants forfall 2005.

Most scholarship recipients work for PHC, HSLDA, or HSF as a condition of their financial aid. In performing necessary, though sometimes mundane, tasks, these students are demonstrating grace and excellence. The lessons they learn at school and on the job will help keep their hearts humble and usable, regardless of the magnitude of their accomplishments later in life.

Thanks for investing in homeschool graduates' futures and in the future of our next generation of leaders!
