FTBNL/Peter Gammons Scholars
Since its founding in 2010, the Peter Gammons Scholars program has helped 105 bright, motivated but under-resourced students attend the college of their choice through awarding direct scholarship grants.
The Gammons scholarship has changed my life dramatically! The foundation made it possible for me to experience college and better my future. Having a mentor and the scholarship, taught me that I have a support system and people in my corner that want to see me succeed.
I just felt the urge to write this to express my gratitude for the Scholarship and the financial support the Foundation has been giving me. Student debt is incredibly crippling and I was hit with a wave of gratitude for the fact that between financial aid and the Gammons Scholarship, I will leave college with no debt. I want to thank you sincerely and deeply for what you are giving me. It is a sense of freedom to be able to move through the world after college without the burden of debt, something that my family would not necessarily have been able to provide me. I truly feel privileged.
As I kid I would dream of college, traveling and studying, and you are allowing me to do this. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me. No words can ever express how my heart feels and the gratitude I have for you and the entire FTBNL.
We are proud to honor 150 scholars around the country. They are chosen for their leadership, high academic performance, commitment to service to others and ability to overcome obstacles. They are at colleges around the country, each with a mentor and a plan for success.
