My name is Alexis Lenderman, and I am a Senior at Western Michigan University. I am studying Entrepreneurship and Global & International Studies with minors in Nonprofit Leadership & Political Science. I have completed five study abroad programs to South Africa, India, the Dominican Republic, South Korea, and Italy. This summer, I will be traveling to Ecuador to improve my Spanish in a seven-week study abroad program through WMU. All of these programs have been (or will be) covered by scholarships and/or grants.
I am an aspiring entrepreneur and I highly recommend everyone being the best version of themselves as he/she can be. I promote study abroad and any other opportunity that fits your interests, even if it means pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone.
I love finding scholarships and helping others find scholarships as well. My Freshman year, I received $10,000 back from scholarships (NO loans!). Each year, my refund is between $3,000-5,000.
One of my scholarships, Horatio Alger, was for $20,000 which included a trip to Washington, D.C. for a few days to accept the scholarship.
Besides that, sometimes your scholarships can come with other scholarships and/or opportunities such as with the Horatio Alger scholarship, I receive $250 a year. Besides that, my Foster Care to Success Scholarship offered me a 2-week internship in D.C. for communication and helping other foster youth succeed in college.
Recently, I have been named the 2017 Newman Civic Fellow by my university president. From this opportunity, I was one of two students to receive a full scholarship through the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute to participate in the Leadership and the American Presidency program (partnered with the Fund for American Studies) in Washington, D.C. for the fall semester. While there, I interned at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption and took courses at George Mason University. ALL of this was covered by scholarships!
I would love to help you do this as well! So let me help YOU go to college for Free!

The Questionnaire should only take about 25-30 minutes to complete.
Once you complete that, I will contact you and you can let me know how long you would like for me to search for your scholarships.
