"I am a first-generation student, and it was a really hard decision for me to attend college or not. Then, I found Peru State College. With the scholarships and affordable living expenses here, Peru made the decision a lot less difficult."

Wayne State allows for quality education at a fair price. Without this institution and the scholarships it has awarded me, I would not be able to achieve my dream of attending medical school. I plan to benefit Nebraska with my education by becoming a physician that practices medicine in rural areas.
