    Thumbs up Swim With Mike Scholarship

    My son who just finished his 1st year @ University of Illinois @ Urbana ,just received a phone call from the Swim With Mike Scholarship people. He will receive a scholarship for the rest of his undergraduate studies. This is a large amount to cover the out of state tuition charges. This will allow him to to back there in August. I just want to thank this forum for providing him with the info on this scholarship, he would never of heard about this scholarship otherwise.

    Thanks again!!!

    Great news! I too am a Swim with Mike recipient and have been extremely pleased with the program. They are extremely generous and helpful.
    Frankly, I'm tired of sitting in this damn electric chair.

    I'll be receiving a SWM scholarship this fall too. Ironically, I volunteered as an undergrad student for the Swim with Mike program and then 10+ years later I'm receiving a scholarship! Tell your son congrats! Hope you'll both come out for the event next year

    My younger brother participated in the last SWM. I have friends who donate every year.

    Congrats to you both and good luck!

    Congrats on your son's scholarship!!! What is he studying, if you don't mind my asking?

    I grew up 8 miles west of the UofI. My Mom retired from there in 1998 and my Brother still works there. It is a top notch university!!!
