Ta’Nya, IU Bloomington Freshman, Studying Psychology and Spanish
“I recently returned home from studying abroad, and I am so thankful to Glick for this award. It will help pay for my school and eliminate some of my mom’s stress. I also want to say thank you to my Mom for all that she does!”
E’Darieon, Butler University Junior, Studying Music Industry Studies
“The Glick Education Award will help fund my schooling. This scholarship will allow me to focus on educational attainment and not be overwhelmed by the fees college may bring. Thank you to the team members at Glick! Also, thanks to my mom for being dedicated to her profession because, without her job, I wouldn’t be able to receive this award. Thank you all, and God Bless!”
Abionna, University of Notre Dame Freshman, Studying Biology

“Thanks to Glick this scholarship has relieved the financial pressures of college. Thanks Mom, I love and appreciate your hard work and dedication, and I appreciate what a kind and giving company you work for!”
Rachel, IUPUI Sophomore, Studying Media Arts and Science
“This scholarship will allow me to reach my goals with fewer obstacles by helping with the cost of college. My biggest dream is to study videography and make a film or movie someday! I also have so much love for Disney, so maybe I can even be a part of creating a Disney movie one day! My mom, a Glick employee, told me about the Glick Education Award. I’m so glad she did because it’s been a great help!”
Danielle, Ball State University, Graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education
"The scholarship I received from Glick certainly paved my way towards a successful undergraduate education and is continuing to support me in my new career! Thank you for the work you do everyday to make dreams like mine to come true. Inspired by the Glick Family, I will spread the kindness you have shown me in my very own classroom and teach my students to be giving, and others focused."
Angelina, Xavier University of Louisiana Freshman, Studying Middle School Education
“The Glick Education Award will help alleviate the financial stress that comes with attending college. Thank you so much, Mom, for all that you do! This award wouldn’t even be possible if it weren’t for you pushing me forward!”
