Belinda Stroud's Samford experience started out like many others. But in April of her junior year, her life took a drastic turn when her father left. She was left wondering how she was going to continue her education and finish her degree at Samford. The university community wrapped its arms around Belinda to make sure she was able to graduate. And in 1989, she did just that due in large part to the support she received from the Samford community.  

The Samford Parents Scholarship was created in 2017 to support students like Belinda who experience unexpected financial hardship and need additional assistance in order to complete their Samford degree. Belinda and her husband Stephen are now parents of a Samford student and they are committed to bringing others together to support students in times of need.

Will you join the Strouds in supporting the Samford Parents Scholarship? Each gift provides hope and resources for students in need of assistance finishing their Samford degree. It also demonstrates the unique level of love and support provided by the Samford family!

Stand up for students who need help crossing the finish line. Help spread the word and encourage your friends, peers and fellow parents to support these students too.
