I am a Canadian resident, and I will be attending Niagara University in Lewiston New York. I have been accepted into the Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counceling program and will start this September. I am wondering if I would qualify to apply for this scholarship? I would appreciate it if someone would contact me at their convenience. Thank you so much.

I applied to this scholarship because I am working on my doctorate in psychology. I am a behavioral therapist working with children with autism. My financial is almost run out, so unless I figure something out soon, I will not be able to continue my degree program. I should be able to obtain my BCBA by the end of the year, resulting in a bump in pay, but there will be two school quarters in between where I have no idea how I will pay my tuition. I want to continue learning and be on the cutting edge of my field.

I applied for this scholarship to help aid in funding my Master's degree for Social Work. It is my God-given strength that I aid people in need. It is my passion to spread awareness about taking care of oneself and their mindset come what may.

I did not apply for this scholarship because I have not yet finished my undergraduate courses. I am looking for scholarships to help me complete my undergraduate studies so that I can obtain my educational goal of earning a Masters in Psychology. I want to specialize in counseling and addictions. I have found that I have a great passion for working with victims of sexual abuse/assault.

Ms. Sanita: My name is Gregg Ramsdell and a retired member from the US Army. For the past 31 years I have seen those around me and as I rose through the ranks, those who I have commanded. I am in need for a scholarship for the use in Psychology with a focus on PTSD. I am a 100 percent service connected disabled with multiple combat tours. I feel I can really assist the younger soldiers, law enforcement and other servants in understanding this affliction and be able to live like normal. I am retired from the military and wanting to advance my studies. Ma'am, I am inquiring about the scholarship and feel I can be a valuable asset to our young hero's. Thank you for your consideration. Gregg Ramsdell, US Army Ret'd
