Bradenton, FL – August 7, 2019 – CampusWorks, a strategic higher education consulting firm, is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by donating $2,000 scholarships to 20 different colleges and universities across the United States and Canada, providing a total of $40,000 in financial support for students in need.

Founded in 1999, CampusWorks’ vision is to improve society by making higher education accessible to everyone, and offering these scholarships is a big step toward making that vision a reality. “We see firsthand the challenges many students face,” said CampusWorks CEO Liz Murphy. “We want to do our part to ensure that financial need does not prevent anyone from pursuing a quality education.”

CampusWorks Board Member Eric Schoenberg announced this charitable initiative at the company’s 20th Anniversary celebration on July 10, 2019 in Orlando, FL. “We are grateful to be in a position to make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many students,” said Schoenberg, who is personally funding half of the scholarships along with his fellow board members, Douglas Schoenberg, David Cohen, and Liz Murphy. CampusWorks and its employees are contributing the other half.

The first three scholarships were awarded during the Alliance for Innovation & Transformation (AFIT) Summer Institute in Plano, Texas on July 31 – August 3, 2019. The first recipient, selected by random raffle at CampusWorks’ client reception on August 1, was Westmoreland County Community College of Youngwood, Pennsylvania. “CampusWorks has been helping Westmoreland through a process review, data cleansing, and now a selection and implementation of new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software,” said President Tuesday Stanley. “The CampusWorks scholarship allows us to do more work in these areas so we are even better positioned to help our students succeed.”
