Scholarship Testimonials

“Our family and friends were pleased to establish the Robert G. Lightsey Memorial Scholarship to be awarded to a deserving music major at William Carey University.  Robert had a God-given musical talent that he shared for over forty years in the music industry, with churches, and with students.  He also loved the Word of God that he studied, taught and shared daily.  Even though Robert enjoyed and supported WCU, it was Carey's excellence in their music department and their dedication to teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ that led us to establish the scholarship.  Our hope is that deserving students will share Robert's love for music and His Lord Jesus Christ and use their talents for His glory.”

I am very grateful for the scholarship I’ve received at WCU. It enables me to continue my studies at a point where unforeseen expenditures would not have allowed me to finish my undergraduate degree.”

“I am extremely grateful for the scholarships I have received at William Carey. If it were not for scholarships, I would've been unable to attend Carey. I love Carey and am so glad that because of academic and endowed scholarships, I am able to be a student here.”
