Hello! I am applying to this scholarship because I come from a large family and as the oldest child I can fully lean on my parents to pay for my college tuition and am interested in majoring in a computer related course. I currently proudly hold a 4.05 GPA which makes me very hopeful to get accepted into the college of my dreams, however I feel anxious when taking in account paying for me education.

I am a Kenyan and I have been admitted at Claflin University to study Computer Science and Information Technology. I love the Microsoft technology and I do not see how the world could do without it. I want to be useful to the society in information communication technology and in computer science. I want to work and make a difference and I can see opportunities ahead of me. However I cannot afford the full cost of my education. This year only I need about U.S$ 18000. I am very determined and I know somehow somewhere there will be a way out.

This scholarship is right up my ally because not only do I like Microsoft and their products but I live it’s all about me and my people. I appreciate Microsoft for giving us the opportunity to get this type of scholarship and for giving us this type of money

I am applying for this scholarship because it will not only afford me the opportunity to pay for college but it will also make me the first in my extended family to go to and subsequently finish a four-year university; something that has not happened in my extended family. I have been admitted into the Computer Science and Computer Engineering majors of 10 universities all of which are great schools but with extremely high costs of attendance. My heart yearns to attend any one of these schools but the costs is always a deterrent. I am hopeful that I will receive this scholarship to make my dreams come true.

Senator Outlines Student Loan Relief in New Proposal

July 30, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the current chairman of the Senate education committee, has recently proposed the Student Loan Repayment and FAFSA Simplification Act, a piece of legislation that would allow students with no income to forgo federal student loan repayments. His recommendations, which he developed with bipartisan support, would also simplify the FAFSA and reduce the number of federal loan repayment options from nine to two. [...]

It’s Not Too Late: Guide to Appealing Financial Aid

July 28, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Have your financial circumstances changed due to COVID-19? You’re not alone. Many students and their families have faced unemployment, reduced job hours and general loss of economic stability in the wake of the pandemic. And as the FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) based on income from the previous year, students may have greater financial need now than they did when they initially filed for federal aid. Unfortunately, the deadline to submit the FAFSA passed at the end of June. However, it is not too late to appeal your student financial aid from your chosen institution. [...]

The FAFSA: Why You Should File (And How!)

July 23, 2020

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we don’t want students to miss out on any form of college financial aid. Applications for the next academic year will open soon, so get prepared by reviewing these FAFSA facts.
