From a graduate architecture student

…thank you for your most generous grant and loan for my last semester of my four-year graduate architectural degree.  The existence of an organization such as yours is surely an early example of the universal brotherhood inherent in ‘peace on earth, goodwill toward men.’  Thank you for all you do around the world, and especially all the help and support you have given me over the past four years.

From a mother of a “second generation” recipient

I have never forgotten the financial support given to me in college by The Albert Baker Fund, especially the fact that this was a Christian Science organization helping students of Christian Science. I felt that I had been given the opportunity to be part of something special in the scope of the Cause of Christian Science. I think [my daughter] feels the same way.

From a Christian Science nursing student

I really like being a Christian Science nurse, because whether I am at work, or I am at home, I still have the same job: striving to be a spiritual idea, and ‘standing porter’ at the door of my thoughts.

From a college student in Africa

My feet have not stopped dancing or my heart from rejoicing since I received the wonderful gift [grant] from the Albert Baker Fund. My family and everyone who contributed to the application process are all so thankful… I am quite certain that this token of love from [ABF] would multiply and bless many more. My sincere thanks again to you for having faith in me.
