Anabelle Caso, BA 20, recipient of a 2020 Concordia University Adopt-A-Student Graduate Award
Having just completed her BA in the linguistics honours program at Concordia, Anabelle Caso is immensely grateful to be a recipient of a Shuffle-funded graduate award.
“Without the generosity and commitment of everyone who donates and participates in the Shuffle, this award would not be possible. This award will make an enormous difference in my ability to attend and enjoy the upcoming semester as I enter my graduate studies, allowing me to focus on and succeed in my program,” says Caso.
The cost of higher education can be a barrier for many students and financial assistance is one of the few ways students can bridge that barrier.
“The Shuffle effectively facilitates a student’s ability to remain in school and succeed by alleviating the financial burden of tuition — this is amazing and the Shuffle is therefore a crucial and life-altering project,” says Caso.
