​Why Give​

When you invest in the University of Findlay, you provide more than a gift. You provide opportunities - opportunities for students who might not be here without you.

Eston Macharia and Nathan Tice, Ph.D.
A typical day for Eston begins at midnight when he walks into his third shift full-time manufacturing job. He knows “it’s not forever, but it helps pay the bills.” After his shift ends, he takes a power nap before traveling to the University of Findlay for class. He’s taking 13 credit hours this semester – his lightest load since transferring to UF in 2016. As the day ends, he’s hopeful to see his 9-year-old son during the upcoming weekend, if he doesn’t have to work overtime.

“When I decided to go back to school I had to prepare myself mentally and physically for not getting as much sleep as I used to. There are definitely days when it’s rough, but I am motivated,” said Eston.

His motivation comes in the form of three endowed scholarships. “I hope to have a career researching renewable sources of energy. Findlay’s small class sizes and one-on-one opportunities with professors creates a better learning atmosphere to best prepare me for graduate school and reach that goal.”

Currently, Eston is researching the chemistry behind next generation electronic materials, like roll-up mobile devices. One day soon, this same type of electronic material could be incorporated into paints and even clothing, possibly allowing your suit to become a solar charging station for your roll-up mobile device. Eston hopes to make future sustainable discoveries like this someday.
