As a working adult with children, “on-campus” learning proved to be challenging as Jason struggled to juggle family, work and school. Fortunately, because he was able to use his scholarship to help cover tuition, he was able to move his family from a rural area with no high-speed internet access to an area with much better network access and speeds. “It made online learning a real possibility for me.”
“The scholarship was a game changer in every way, I was even able to cut back on some work days to focus on school work, which made a huge difference for me and my family.”
Jason cares deeply about his community, the Lummi Nation, and their ever-threatened way of life. His deep-seated commitment to fighting for his people’s rights fuels Jason every day and has motivated him to finish his degree so he may continue on to law school and defend the rights of his community through the support of the law.
