Alexis Lenderman is a recent graduate of Western Michigan University with two degrees, a certification, and a minor. During her undergraduate career, she studied abroad 8 times to South Africa, India, the Dominican Republic, South Korea, Italy, Ecuador, Senegal, and Hong Kong. All of these programs have been covered by scholarships and/or grants. She received prestigious scholarships and awards such as The Benjamin Gilman Scholarship, two Presidential Scholar awards, Truman Scholar finalist, as well as many others.
In her freshman year, she received $10,000 back from scholarships. One of her scholarships, Horatio Alger, was for $20,000 which included a trip to Washington, D.C. to accept the scholarship.
What she’s been able to achieve is not impossible. It just takes planning, resourcefulness, and self-advocacy. Because Alexis graduated with over $200,000 in scholarships, she created The Scholarship Expert to help even more students maximize their college experiences. Alexis hopes to inspire other students to see beyond the limitations around them.
